Up to 14% of all iPhones will be assembled in India this year

The pandemic and its lockdowns have taught electronics manufacturers a lesson about the dangers of geographically concentrating production in one area, and geopolitical tensions between the United States and China are forcing many companies to relocate to neighboring countries. By the end of this year, India could become the production site for around 14% of all Apple iPhones released.

Similar assessments Mentions renowned industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. More specifically, he assumes that 12 to 14 percent of the iPhones shipped worldwide this year came onto the market in India. Typically, up to 80% of local production volumes were provided by Foxconn, which has impressive facilities in China. Next year, the expert said, the share of the Chinese site in Zhengzhou, which suffered last year from lockdowns and mass protests by workers, will decline in the structure of Foxconn’s production program, and production volumes will fall by 35-45%. In Taiyuan, production volumes will be reduced by 75-85%.

Luxshare is also moving production of Apple products outside China to India. Brazil and Vietnam are trying to compete with India in this sense, but have little chance of taking over the production volume of Apple smartphones. In India, Apple already produces smartphones worth a total of $7 billion per year through its contract partners. Over the next five years, this amount could grow to $40 billion. This year, Apple’s partners began assembling the new generation of iPhones for the first time with minimal delays compared to Chinese locations. According to Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will even move some of its activities related to the development of the iPhone 17 family to India by the end of 2024, further strengthening its ties with this country. Last year, the first two Apple brand stores were opened in India, and the company’s boss, Tim Cook, personally attended the ceremony.
