According to the recently published 'Global Handset Vendor Share in 15 Countries in Q3 2014', published under our Handset Country Share Tracker (HCST) service, Micromax ranks no.2 in handset market in India during Q3 2014, closing the gap against the leading vendor, Samsung. The market share difference between those two got narrowed to a record-low level in Q3 2014.
Asus, the Taiwanese handset vendor and better known for its laptop, desktop and server products, is slowly but meaningfully enhancing its handset market presence in several key countries including China, India and its home Taiwanese market based on its Zenfone and Padfone series. As this vendor is also aggressively shipping its handsets into other big markets such as Russia, Brazil, Turkey, Indonesia, Vietnam and Thailand, it is expected that Asus is sure to keep up its handset market share in those countries in coming quarters.
