Popular smartphone models in India are almost out of stock. It also includes smartphones from Xiaomi, Samsung, Apple, and Realme. These smartphones are over from both the e-commerce site and the retail market.
At present, only 20 to 30 percent of the smartphone demand is being supplied. According to the industry, executive brands had completed the channels to keep the availability during Diwali. But, now many top-selling models are out of stock.
According to market researchers IDC and Counterpoint, this will affect the October-December quarterly sale. According to a report in Gadgets Now, a senior executive said it is not yet clear when the supply of brands will improve.
Smartphone companies are facing a lot of trouble due to the global shortage of semiconductor chipsets. Counterpoint Research Director Tarun Pathak said that brands had somehow managed by depositing stocks during the festive season this year, while there is still a lot of supply pressure.
He explained that demand decreases by 30-40 percent every Diwali. But, this time the supply has been quite affected. The main reason for this is chipset shortage. The shortage of popular smartphone models may run by the end of this year. Brands can then stock models for India.
The shortage is in many price segments. This ranges from the highest entry-level to sub-segments of Rs 20,000 and super-premium segments. The rest of the iPhone models except the two-year-old iPhone 11 on Amazon is out of stock.
