Electronics & Gadgets sales surges as lockdown eases
The sales of electronic and gadgets like smartphones, laptops, tablets, and WiFi dongles have gone up tremendously, following the ease in lockdown at most of the places.
Most of the demand is being served by online channels as many physical stores are still not open or are working with limited capacity. Many new smartphones, including Xiaomi’s Mi10, One Plus 8, and Realme’s Narzo series were listed for sale on e-commerce stores. Realme sold 70,000 units of its Narzo 10 smartphone within three minutes. The OnePlus 8 (5G) sold out within minutes of going live through an early access sale on Amazon.in on 18 May.
With work from home or remote working and learning becoming the new normal, demand for laptops and tablets is also on rise. On online platforms, laptops, tablets, headphones and wearables are among the most searched categories. PC companies have witnessed an increase in demand for laptops both from enterprise and consumers.
