  Handset market in India –complex to estimate

   Estimated ~ 108 million mobile phones were sold in India during 2009-10

   Estimated ~ 150 million new mobile connections were sold in India during
                                 2009-10                     * Based on secondary sources

  Replacement market – 67% of new handset market is replacement market.
  With most people buying a replacement in 2 years, in Y2009, ~200 million
    should have been replacement from Y2007 & 100 million from Y2005

  There is a significant gap between what is claimed to be sale of cell phone connections &
  what should be number of handsets selling in the Indian market

  Few hypotheses which could explain the gap:-

             1. Many registered (especially pre-paid) numbers not in use? – over reporting of
                subscriber base over years
             2. Plethora of unregistered handsets in the Indian market
             3. Re-cycling of handsets – second hand purchase, while this is under-reported in the
                industry
