CarTrade Tech – Industry Overview.       

Internet and smartphone penetration in India has nearly doubled from 2015 to 2019 and is expected to increase further in the future. Since 2000, many Indians have skipped the traditional fixed-lines phones and embraced mobile phones. 90% of all phone connections were fixed line in 2000.  Today, 90% of all phone connections are mobile.  Internet adoption has picked up gradually, as data rates in India have declined. Before 2016, data rates in India were one of the lowest in the world at US$ 3.5 per GB, although this was not affordable enough for the masses. In 2016, with the launch of Reliance Jio, data prices became affordable at approximately US$0.09per GB, or the so-called “Jio effect”, and India’s internet adoption increased significantly from 317 million internet users in 2015 to approximately 690 million users in 2020. At the same time, there has been significant growth in the adoption of smartphones, driven by the availability of low-cost alternatives from local and global brands. The easy availability of smartphones, ease of consuming content on them, cheap data, and high-speed 4G connections have enabled Indians to embrace digital apps.
