Smartphones scored once during the 7 days (15 to 21 October) during the festive sale in the country. Smartphones sold the most in the shopping category and acquired 47% share of the total festive sale. The credit goes to the newly launched and affordable smartphone models.
According to Bengaluru-based market research firm RedSeer, in the first week of the festive sale, online platforms sold smartphones worth Rs 1.5 crore every minute. This was due to Value Selection, Affordability Scheme and Fast Delivery.
The director of RedSeer Consulting says, “In many ways, this is truly the #FestivalofFirsts for Indian e-commerce that will form a strong foundation for its future growth.”

Last year, fashion did not have a major contribution in the festive sale, but this time the fashion share reached 14 percent. While the demand for formal and festive wear is still low.
The report states, “Demand for categories such as home and home furnishing has increased strongly due to work-from-home and study-from-home infrastructure.” Let us know that the smartphone company Mi India had informed last week that the company sold 50 lakh handsets on Amazon, Flipkart and mi.com platform during the 7 days festive sale.
