    Home grown brand Micromax on Wednesday announced that it had become the third largest handset player in Russia with a market share of over 9% in Q4 2015 (Oct-Dec). The numbers come courtesy Counterpoint's Market Monitor program.
    The company grew more than 350% annually in the Russian market in the same period, according to the report.
    "This is an exciting time for us at Micromax as we are a step closer to our vision of becoming the part of the top five handset players in the world. Russia has been one of our focus markets in the past two years and we have seen a great consumer acceptance for the brand in the market," Amit Mathur, Head International Business, Micromax Informatics said.

    The company is known for its affordable 4G and 3G smartphones in the domestic
    market. It has been focusing primarily on affordable smartphones and the 4G segment in Russia as well. "With our focus on affordable smartphone segment, 4G and 3G, we will continue to work towards
    consolidating our position in the Russian market," Mathur added.
    The figures are particularly impressive as the company made its debut in the Russian market in January 2014 only. The Canvas Beat and Canvas Social were its first smartphones there. As per Counterpoint's Market Monitor program the mobile phone market in Russia grew by 8% annually and 27% sequentially during Q4 2015. Smartphone shipments remained almost flat registering a 1% growth annually in a market where close to sixty brands are competing for the top spot.

    Doesn't Micromax simply paste the "Made in XXX" sticker over "Made in China" white labelled hardware?

    Few years ago.
    Later, it started own R&D and massively reduced dependency of China and ended up as 12th largest mobile manufacturer in 2014.(Not know current rank but they want to be top 5).
    Later, during budget rate, their growth was affected but they again recovered and attained 40% growth.

    they could easily make more profit by importing mostly Chinese maal but didn't.
    This is called Nationalism. :)
    We have a Nationalist Company. :india2:

    If it is popular in Russia, it can be popular everywhere. Micromax should now focus on rolling out their own kernels for optimised performance.
