World’s second largest maker of mobile phones Motorola is now going to manufacture mobile phones in India. They would now be starting to assemble mobile phones in India starting next month itself. The aim is to increase their market share in the ever-growing Indian market, which is adding more than a million mobile customers every month.

Allen Burnes, Vice President for mobile devices at Motorola spoke to reporters: “We shall start shipping made in India handsets in India by December.” With almost around 3 million new customers joining the mobile user market every month, it becomes important for all the top mobile manufacturers to have a presence here.

I really wish that to be true. I am in IT industry myself. Sadly, that is not the case.

IT companies in India do not even have a double-digit market share. They have many more miles to cover to have a significant impact.

This is what TCS had to say in 2002

I’ve never considered India as a superpower, you cannot become one with just two percent market share.
