The Tablet Market in India:
Tablet computers or just tablets are small and handy personal computers. They are run mainly on the mobile operating system, has a touchscreen, and sometimes have the voice calling ability, but typically larger than a smartphone. Their sleek and compact design, portable nature with productivity suits available made this device very popular.
India has a huge market for tablet computers, although the market shows lack of growth for the last couple of years. The second quarter of 2017 showed an 11% decline in the shipping of this device in comparison to the previous quarter. Market analysis shows that this fall is mostly due to lack of interest of customers in 3G-enabled tablets. With 4G data becoming affordable, 4G-tablets have started gaining popularity. Tablets with more power and RAM also showed market growth. While the SIM-enabled tablets continue to be the preferred models in the corporate sector, the devices with Wi-Fi feature are in demand in the student community. Also, affordable tablets under ₹ 5000 price band are popular in rural India.
The third quarter of 2017 showed a huge growth in the tablet market since Lenovo’s market increased by 46%.

This catapulted Lenovo to the top position among the tablet vendors in India.
Many renowned tablet manufacturers are planning to release their newest models in Indian market this year. This will definitely lead to an upsurge in tablet PC demand among Indian customers.
About the company:
Xiaomi is a Chinese computer electronics and software manufacturer founded in 2010. Xiaomi’s headquarter is located in Beijing, China. In 2011, the company introduced its first smartphone, and within 3 years it had become China’s largest smartphone vendor, and presently it is the world’s fifth largest smartphone manufacturer. Xiaomi has business centres in China, India, Malaysia, Singapore and also spreading to Indonesia, Philippines, and South Africa.
Xiaomi’s CEO, Mr Lei Jun claims that they provide smartphones to the customer at almost “bill-of-material” price without compromising performance or quality. To reduce overhead expenditure, the company does not own any physical outlet and sells its products online. Also, instead of advertising, they keep faith on word-of-mouth and social media platforms, they heavily depend on customer feedback. Xiaomi undergoes flash sale of its products to check supply more than demand. The motto of this company is ‘always believe that something wonderful is about to happen’. Xiaomi devices, especially, tablet computers and smartphones have a stock and aftermarket firmware known as MIUI (Mi user interface). MIUI includes various apps and features based on the Android operating system.
The Xiaomi’s products are manufactured mainly by Foxconn and Inventec. Xiaomi mainly produces smartphones, and other than smartphones, its product line includes tablet computers, smart TVs, network routers, power banks, set-top boxes, cloud storage and cloud computing services, laptops, smart bands and smartwatches, speakers, earphones, air-purifiers, and accessories for smartphones and tablets.
MIT Technology Review ranked Xiaomi in 2nd position on a list of 50 smartest companies in 2015. It also secured the third position as ‘Most Innovative Company’ in 2014 by Fast Company. Xiaomi sold 2112010 mobile phones with 24 hours through its website breaking the Guinness world record of “most mobile phones sold on a single online platform in 24 hours”.
History of the company in India:
Xiaomi landed in India in 2014, and since then India has been the biggest market for Xiaomi products after China. In 2017, Xiaomi was the second most popular smartphone vendor in India behind Samsung. Xiaomi entered Indian market offering its product Mi 3 smartphone through the e-commerce site Flipkart. The customer has to register for the phone beforehand, which would undergo sale for a narrow window of time. Though the stock was finished within a few seconds, Xiaomi received negative customer reviews mainly due to the scarcity of spare parts. This type of flash was not taken positively by some conservative customers, however, that could not make a dent in Xiaomi’s growing popularity. With big discount offered by online retailers during October, India’s biggest shopping season, Xiaomi sold over 1 million smartphones in just 18 days. From 2017, Xiaomi started to sell its devices from physical stores too. Also, Xiaomi has opened its manufacturing unit in India to compete with other cell phone vendors. Other Chinese smartphone manufacturers, like OnePlus, Oppo, etc. and Indian company Micromax are giving tough competition to Xiaomi. However, with Manu Jain as Vice President, Xiaomi is in able hand as far as Indian market is concerned. Xiaomi has to resolve its issue of lack of supply to ever increasing demand of Indian customers and the company is hopeful that with physical outlets initiating the sale of Xiaomi devices, lack of supply will not be a problem anymore.
