How much will the price increase?

  • In India, around 20-50% supply of electronic components comes from the Chinese market.
  • Tarun Pathak, director of research at Counterpoint Research, said that if the lockdown extends beyond March 20, prices will start rising. Smartphone prices may increase by 5-7%.

iPhone supply interrupted

Apple issued a revised investor guidance saying that iPhone supplies will be disrupted temporarily as the company's manufacturing partners in China are ramping up production at a slower pace than estimated. Two industry executives said Apple distributors in India have already signalled to their key trade partners about the shortage of iPhones. An exclusive Apple retailer said that discounts on e-commerce platforms and stores might stop for the next few days due to a lack of iPhones.
