“India is an extremely important market in Xiaomi’s globalization strategy. It has become our largest market outside of mainland China,” Jun wrote. “When we entered India, there was extremely fierce competition. We have achieved such extraordinary growth in India firstly because of our vision to bring innovation to everyone with our high-quality products at incredible prices.”
“Secondly, we have an amazing team in India. We will continue investing in India to deliver the best products to our Mi fans — expanding our supply, ensuring the high quality of our products, and further improving our after-sales service,” he added.
Jun also mentioned that the company is looking to capture the largest market share in India in coming next three to five years.
