This year, sales kick off on September 23 with Amazon’s Great India Festival and Flipkart’s Big Billion Days.

“Our forecast is for smartphone sales to be around $7.7 billion during the holiday season, the highest ever. However, we estimate a 9 percent year-over-year decline in terms of shipments. We’ve seen a similar trend this year on the 618 festival in China, where shipments fell 10 percent year-on-year,” Singh noted.

The festive shopping season ends with the Diwali sale.

As for channels, the offline market players are pushing promotions and offers similar to their online counterparts.

“Entry-level and budget segments have seen significant declines in recent quarters. However, we expect these segments to grow during the holiday season, although growth may be limited as consumers in these segments are under pressure from macro -economic headwinds,” Pathak added.
