The Tablet Market in India:
Indian tablet market follows global tablet market closely. With the introduction of smartphones with more than 6-inch screen size, tablet market went downhill. Last year in India, there were quite a few ups and downs in the shipment of tablet PCs. According to the International Data Corporation, Lenovo was the top seller of tablet PCs followed by Acer, Samsung, iBall and Datawind making the top five vendors of tablet computers.
The market shows a strong preference for Android-run tablets over iOS-based ones. The Windows-run tablets are also getting good business, though there are a very few Windows-run models available in the market. Since Indian buyers are price-sensitive, affordable tablets show better market growth in this country. Recently, with better access to 4G data, the 4G-enabled tablets are becoming more and more popular.
With new tablet models to be released in the market this year by Apple, Samsung, Lenovo and other vendors, the market is definitely seeing an upswing. Various government projects to provide tablet computers to each and every student of this country is also going to help in increasing the popularity of these devices.
About the company:
Headquartered in Round Rock, Texas, Dell Inc. is an American multinational computer technology company founded in 1984. The company was founded as ‘PC’s Limited’ by an IBM PC compatible computer seller Michael Dell with personal capital. He designed the first computer which was sold at a much lower price as compared to IBM. This computer was an instant hit, in another couple of years, the company started producing around 7000 computers per month, built according to customer’s specifications. In 1988, the company was renamed as Dell Computer Corporation, and again in 2003, the company was renamed as Dell Inc. as their product line went beyond personal computers. From 1996, Dell started selling its products online, and it was arguably the first company to customize personal computers according to the buyer’s choice. Dell acquired EMC Corporation for USD 67 billion in 2016, which is considered to be the biggest ever acquisition in the IT sector. Dell Inc. became a leader in PC market with their innovative strategies of direct online sales, and production of buyer specified devices.
Although started as a manufacturer of personal computers, Dell Inc. has diversified its product range considerably. Presently Dell Inc. develops, manufactures, sells and repairs desktop computers, laptops, tablet PCs, two-in-one devices, servers, data storage options, computer peripherals, network switches, HD televisions, cameras, printers, etc.
Dell Inc. claims to follow Global Reporting Initiative protocol and reports its environmental performance annually. Dell’s research and development wings have permanent recycling centres and the company has been reported to recycle/reuse 85% of its products. In 2012, Dell Inc. secured a 5th position on Greenpeace’s ranking of electronics makers.
The History of the Company in India:
Dell set up its centre in Bangalore in 1996 as Dell Computer India Private Limited. Before Dell entered the Indian market, HP and Lenovo were the major players in personal computers sector. Since Dell had its factory in Malaysia, Indian buyers had to wait for more than 4 weeks to have their order delivered. In 2007, Dell established its manufacturing unit in Sriperumbudur near Chennai. Dell India has come up a long way since then and according to International Data Corporation, Dell sold more than 1.1 million PCs in India in the year 2010, ahead of HP. This was because Dell established its manufacturing unit in India, cutting down the delay in delivery time and also in delivery cost. Customer support began from Bangalore, and later from Hyderabad, Mohali and Gurgaon under Dell International Services. Dell also started establishing its own outlets, where customers can not only have a look but touch and feel the product before buying. Dell also started doorstep advertising with registered sales executives giving first-hand experience door to door. Another advertising policy adopted by Dell in India was the real-life entrepreneurs endorsing Dell PCs, instead of celebrities and film stars. With these aggressive market strategies, Dell India continues to make a profit, while globally Dell is losing to HP and Acer, and in China, Lenovo continues to dominate the market.
At present in India, Dell has a number of delivery centres across the country, like Noida, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune and Coimbatore.
