In 2021, Imagine Marketing (BoAt), which includes the brand’s BoAt and Edict, remained the market leader with a 39.3 percent (by shipments) market share and 187.9% year-over-year growth.


Realme was in second place with a 7.7% market share. Nexxbase (Noise) surpassed Samsung to take third place with a 7.5 percent market share, followed by Palred (pTron) with a 6.0 percent market share. Samsung slid to fifth place, with devices from Samsung, JBL, and Infinity. Samsung’s TWS shipments fell 23.0% year over year, giving the Korean company a 4.7 percent market share.

“With increased awareness, consumers will continue to migrate from wired to wireless devices and upgrade to devices with better sound experience, longer battery, and comfort,” said Ekta Mittal, Market Analyst, Client Devices, IDC India.

According to IDC, these companies’ aggressive online entry and expansion caused the TWS average selling price (ASP) to drop to $32.8 (Rs 2,400) in 2021 from $43.6 (Rs 3,200) in 2020, resulting in nearly 90% of the TWS category falling below the $50 (Rs 3,700) price range.

According to Anisha Dumbre, Industry Analyst, Client Devices, IDC India, market rivalry at entry-level price points has driven the average selling price (ASP) of watches down to $61.3 from $122.1 in 2020. “This is placing a lot of pressure on new entrants and other established businesses to stand out in the market.”

“However, the encouraging reception of new brands viz Nothing, Google, and LG electronics shows consumer enthusiasm in the mid-end segment,” it added.

According to Upasana Joshi, Research Manager at IDC India, the industry is predicted to expand “multiply in 2022,” with homegrown brands’ attempts to drive affordability and access tier-2 and tier-2 cities driving this growth. “We’ll also see new suppliers join the mid to premium end by attracting users with features tailored to gaming, ANC, and other activities,” says the analyst.
