Market Survey - Q1 2020 (Based on Number of Units Sold by Smartphone Brands in Pakistan)

In Pakistan, we have seen huge competition between the smartphone brands over the last couple of years.

Hence, brands like Infinix, Tecno, Vivo and others have managed to grab most of the local market share by providing exceptional value for money.

Samsung was once the best selling Android smartphones in Pakistan as they were around the globe. But, for a couple of years, Chinese brands are continuously beating them in terms of sales by providing better value for money. Their market share in terms of units sold dropped from 14.1% to 9.6% which is no surprise. They better need to bring in phones that actually compete with the competition. Only putting in a “Super AMOLED” display wouldn’t do it, as most people do not care, they want a phone that can last for a couple of years without getting slow due to outdated chipsets and GPUs.

6. Others (26.1%)

Others include Realme, Xiaomi, Huawei, Qmobile and more.

Smartphone manufacturers must learn through research what the consumers want and they need to deliver accordingly, basically, bringing in “Value for Money” options would serve them best.
