CONFERENCE INTRODUCTION:-

The Indian Smart device market is vibrant, with healthy competition and varied offerings in all segments of the market. The volume mix is also shifting towards the mid to high tiers as the replacement market starts to pick up steam. The Indian telecommunications industry is one of the fastest growing in the world and India is projected to become the second largest telecom market globally.

India is the second largest mobile handset market in the world after China. The total number of mobile subscribers has hit a high of 771.18 million in India and reaching it to 1000 million by the year 2014. According to a research, the mobile handset market’s revenue is expected to rise from Rs 25,591 crore (Rs 255.91 billion) in 2010 to Rs 35,005 crore (Rs 350.05 billion) in 2016. Wireless Expertise expresses that by 2013 smartphone penetration will be approaching approximately 28-30% of the total mobile market in 2013.

The rate of smart device implementation has exceeded that of any consumer technology in history.  Compared to recent technologies, smart device adoption is being adopted 10X faster than that of the 80s PC revolution, 2X faster than that of 90s Internet Boom and 3X faster than that of recent social network adoption.  Five years into the smart device growth curve, expansion of this new technology is rapidly expanding beyond early adopter markets.

A complex handset value chain has transformed into an even more complex value web or ecosystem.  And there are continually new stakeholders being added to this. To understand the big picture, come to grips with the trends, learning from the future to get on the path to success the event will unfold many facets of this devices world including intersection points with adjacent and converging industries where innovation at the periphery has the potential to bring breakthroughs.
