    Boat, Noise Lead Wearables Shipments in India in Q3, TWS Segment Sees 1156.3 Percent Annual Growth: IDC

    International Data Corporation (IDC) has released its Q3 2020 data for smartwatches and earphones and the firm suggests a year-over-year (YoY) growth of 165.1 percent was registered in the overall Indian wearables market. The most significant rise was observed in the earwear category, wherein a total of four million true wireless stereo (TWS) devices were reportedly shipped during the quarter. The TWS category reported a whopping annual growth of 1156.3 percent in Q3, 2020. The overall wearables market in India saw 11.8 million units shipped in third quarter of 2020.

    The new report from IDC claims that wearable devices have become affordable over the last few quarters resulting in increase in shipments. The TWS earbuds average selling price has also reduced to $57 (roughly Rs. 4,200) in Q3 2020 – a YoY drop of 48.6 percent, resulting in massive shipments and growth. The earwear category, spearheaded by TWS earbuds, witnessed a 260.5 percent YoY growth in the third quarter of this year.

    IDC notes that Boat leads in the earwear category with 32.4 percent of market share in the third quarter, and Samsung comes in second with 15 percent share. Narrowing it down to the TWS category, Boat again led with a 26.1 percent share, and Realme came in second with 15.5 percent market share.

    Coming to other categories in the wearable segment, IDC says that while wristbands grew 83.3 percent quarter-on-quarter (QoQ), the first half of 2020 witnessed a steady decline in shipments of wristbands. Due to the decline in the first six months, the wristband category saw a decline of 20.3 percent YoY. IDC says that this is because users in India started shifting from wristbands to watches. In the wristband category, Xiaomi holds the top position with 52.4 percent market share and Realme comes in second with 14.6 percent market share.
