Techarc India Smart Tech Brands Ranking Feb 2024


In its February 2024 report of India Smart Tech Brands Monthly Ratings, Techarc released the benchmarking and rankings of Indian brands across 6 categories comparing their standing with the global counterparts.  In all 36 brands were compared across the categories of smartphones, smart watches, TWS earbuds, tablets, smart door locks and dash cams.  This is the first edition of the monthly report released by Techarc. Techarc hard previously released a special report regarding this on Republic Day 2024.

Highlighting the key pointers, Faisal Kawoosa, Chief Analyst and Founder, Techarc said, “While it is a big achievement that today almost every global brand is making its smart tech products in India, what is more encouraging to witness is the acceptance of indigenous brands across different categories that have emerged especially in the past 10 years.

“Since the encouragement of the present government to not only ‘Make in India’ but also Design and Develop in India, several startups and traditional business houses have forayed in these categories.  Earlier the criticism was that these brands are not able to produce globally competitive products and customers, especially youth are indifferent to these brands.  This is changing as indicated by the ratings these brands have earned basis customer feedback and review on popular e-marketplaces,” said Faisal.
