Smartphone users in India 2015-2022 This statistic shows the number of smartphone users in India from 2015 to 2022.

Smartphone users in India – additional information

The number of smartphone users worldwide is projected to amount to nearly 2.7 billion by 2019. It is expected that, by 2017, almost a third of the total global population will use a smartphone. Due to China’s rapid growth, the country has become a distant leader in the smartphone market, leaving the U.S., which previously held the top position, far behind. Smartphone users in China already accounted for 38 percent of the country’s population in 2015. By 2019, almost half of the population in China is projected to use a smartphone. These figures are impressive, considering China is the most populous country in the world. For 2019, the number of smartphone users in China is estimated to amount to nearly 675 million.

India, the second most populous country in the world, is projected to pass the United States in number of smartphone users in 2017. Around 223 million people in the U.S. will use a smartphone by 2017, compared to 340 million in India. Despite this increase in volume, the U.S. still has a higher smartphone penetration rate than India. The smartphone penetration rate in India is forecast to reach more than 28 percent by 2018, a penetration rate that the U.S. already reached in 2011. By 2017, the smartphone penetration rate in the U.S. is expected to total 68.4 percent. Xiaomi was the leading smartphone vendor in India in 2019, followed by Samsung and Vivo.
