The current foldable smartphone sales in India are nearly 3,00,000 which is likely to grow to 10 lakh units by 2026, new data showed on Monday.

The country is reportedly expecting to witness a growth of around 20 times in the foldable smartphone shipments by 2026, which is around 64% growth in compound annual growth rate (CAGR) terms, as per the market research firm CyberMedia Research (CMR).

Led by Samsung, its foldable phones have grown four times since 2020 in the country, with Fold device garnering 61 per cent market share while its Flip foldable model reached 39 per cent market share in the country.

"As Samsung steers foldable phone innovation, and gets ready to debut its fourth generation of foldable phones, it is important to note that foldable phones are reaching an inflexion point in terms of shipments as well as consumer acceptance," Prabhu Ram, Head-Industry Intelligence Group (IIG), CMR, told IANS.

The research around foldable phones shows a very positive outlook, "with an almost 20 times potential market growth until 2026 since their market debut," he added.

According to Samsung, the world saw nearly 10 million foldable smartphones being shipped worldwide last year -- an industry increase of more than 300 per cent from 2020.
