What Makes It A Huge Achievement?
As per data shared by Manu, there were brands before Xiaomi, and brands which came after Xiaomi, but none of them are even close to what Xiaomi was able to achieve.
Without naming any brand, he said that 2nd biggest smartphone company sold 43 million smartphones in the last 5 years, and the brand which is at #3 was able to sell only 30 million smartphones.
Xiaomi Is The Undisputed Champion?
As per IDC numbers, if we combine both offline and online sales in the last 5 years of all smartphone brands, then Xiaomi is at #1 position with 46.5% share in the online sales, and 28.3% share in the offline space.
This makes Xiaomi #1 smartphone brand in both online and offline space.
As of now, Xiaomi is an active participant of Make in India vision, as they are successfully producing smartphones via three plants in India.
These are contractual manufacturing, handled by Foxconn, HiPad and their new partner Flex,
At their third plant, which became operational a few months ago, Xiaomi is manufacturing 3 smartphones per second.
