MAG World Expo, Mobile Accessories Trade Exhibition Kick-starts in Bengaluru
Bangalore: MAG World Expo, a first-of-its-kind trade exhibition for Mobiles, Accessories, and Gadgets was launched today at KTPO exhibition Centre, Whitefield, Bengaluru, India. The event was conceptualized and presented by Virgo Communications & Exhibitions to provide a platform for leading Indian brands in the mobile accessory space to showcase their latest products and technologies to the distributor and retailer communities. The event is being held from 10th to 12th March 2022.
The Indian mobile accessories market is an unorganized sector that caters to more than 70% of the mobile users in India through direct and indirect means. Taking pride in the Make-In-India initiative, over 40 leading Indian mobile accessory and technology brands including Ubon, Mobilla, U&I, and KDM participated in the expo. An indicator of the growing demand for mobile accessory supplies is the increase in smartphone sales by over 8% and an increase in the average selling price (ASP) by over 26% across the mobile smartphone market in comparison to 2019 levels.
Another key sector for the mobile accessories market is the wearable and audio-device brands. The current market size is projected to grow from 57.3 billion dollars in 2020 to 134.2 billion dollars by 2025; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 18.6% from 2020 to 2025. This growth across the mobile accessories market is expected to propel many leading Indian brands across the 1000-crore mark by 2025.
