Who is the most hurt when India blocks 59 apps: Chinese enterprises or Indian people

21st century economic report


June 30, according to the Global Times quoted local Indian media reports, the Indian government on 29, said in a press release, India out of

21st century business reporter learned from the official website of the Indian government that Indian officials have received many complaints from various sources, including several reports of abuse of certain mobile applications available on Android and IOS platforms, which steal and secretly transfer user data to servers outside India in unauthorized ways.

Indian officials believe that the compilation of these data and the excavation and analysis of factors hostile to India's national security and defense will eventually affect India's sovereignty and integrity. It is a very profound and urgent issue and urgent measures need to be taken.

This is the reason for the ban given by India, and it is worth noting that India did not directly point out in the statement

According to the reporter's understanding, this banned list includes the more well-known Internet products with Chinese background in the Indian market. For example Kwai tiktok overseas TikTok, fast overseas Kwai, WeChat, QQ series, Baidu series, UC series, millet community, etc.

Indeed, India's government ban on Chinese Internet products has also limited the Indian market

Later, this remove China apps was officially removed from the shelves by Google because it violated the relevant policies of Google play. At that time, only a small number of Indians unloaded Chinese products, but now the Indian government directly and completely banned the use of the above 59 applications in mobile and non mobile network enabled devices.

In addition, before the restrictions on Chinese software products, the Indian government had already begun to deal with hardware products from China. According to the global times, India will inspect all power equipment purchased from China to see if there is malware or trojan virus in it.

In an interview with local media, Indian Minister of state for new and renewable energy, Singh, said his department had proposed to impose tariffs on some solar equipment from August 1. Higher tariff barriers, strict testing of foreign equipment and prior licensing requirements for imports from rival countries are key areas of India's ongoing power sector reform.

At present, the bad Indian market environment has undoubtedly brought a serious blow to Chinese companies' going out to sea. For a long time, the Indian market has always been the first choice for Chinese companies to go abroad, mainly because of the sluggish development of the Internet and the large population in India, which makes the market still has a huge demographic dividend. Many Chinese companies can directly transfer the successful experience of China to the Indian market.

After years of development, many Chinese products have been successful in the Indian market. For example, tiktok, a subsidiary of bytecomb, according to sensor tower data, on April 30 this year, the total download volume of tiktok in app store and Google play has exceeded 2 billion times. Among them, India is the market with the largest download volume of tiktok, contributing more than 600 million downloads.

Another example is Xiaomi. According to the first quarter report of this year, Xiaomi has kept the first record of shipment volume for 11 consecutive quarters in the Indian market, and its market share in Q1 will reach 31.2% in 2020.

In fact, India's smartphone market is now dominated by domestic manufacturers. Among the top five smartphone manufacturers in India, except Samsung, all are Chinese manufacturers, accounting for more than 70% of the market share.

As for the ban measures of the Indian government, up to the press, companies including byte skipping and Xiaomi have not made an official response.

But chinese companies are responding to changes in india's market environment. According to media reports, Xiaomi has recently been changing the facade of India's offline stores, printed with

Manu, Xiaomi's head of India, said in an interview with the media that public sentiment was mainly limited to social media and had not affected Xiaomi's business in India. All millet mobile phones and most smart TVs in the Indian market are produced in India. 65% of the parts are from local countries. Xiaomi India Company is completely led by India, and 100% of the data of Indian users remain in India.

In fact, most Chinese companies in the process of going to sea, are very focused on the localization of products, so will set up local offices and recruit a large number of local staff. And, for India, where its industry is immature, restrictions

For example, in mid June, a new product of a Chinese mobile phone manufacturer was sold out in a few minutes on the Indian version of Amazon. An Indian told local media that Indians had to buy mobile phones, and most of the mobile phones in the market were Chinese ones. He points out that there are few other brands that offer better price performance than Chinese smartphone manufacturers.
