Foldable smartphones are predicted to generate sales worth over Rs 6,300 crore in India this year, contributing over 1.8 per cent of the total smartphone revenue, according to a report. Market research firm techARC estimates that over 6.35 lakh foldable smartphones will be sold in India during the year, accounting for less than 0.5 per cent of total sales by volume. The report also forecasts that the foldable form factor will surpass one million annual sales in 2025, doubling within the next three years by 2028.

The growth of "affordable," foldable smartphones priced below Rs 80,000, is expected to be a significant factor driving this growth. The report projects that by 2023, affordable will contribute more than half (52 per cent) of the total sales in unit terms.

The foldable smartphone market in India is divided into two variants: H-fold (flip smartphones) and V-fold (fold or book fold smartphones). The report suggests that 64 per cent of sales in 2023 will be flip smartphones.
