Samsung Nears ₹1 Lakh Crore Milestone In India Thanks To Its Smartphone Sales


Samsung Electronics is on the cusp of a significant milestone in India, eyeing the ₹1 lakh crore annual revenue mark, nearly three decades since its inception in the nation.

What Happened? The tech giant’s recent filings reveal a whopping ₹98,924 crore income in 2022-23.

However, it’s not all rosy. While sales surged by 16% in FY23, the net profit dipped to ₹3,452 crore from ₹3,844 crore the previous year. The dip came amidst a challenging market environment, especially in the latter half of the fiscal year.

But here’s where Samsung shines – its mobile phone business. Dominating the Indian market, their mobile sales alone contributed ₹70,292 crore in FY23. The success? Largely credited to their ultra-luxurious Galaxy Z series and the ever-popular S series. These premium phones, coupled with their stronghold in the mid-segment, have propelled Samsung’s growth.
