CEO of Huawei India, Jay Chen, has reportedly identified the Indian market as one with a potential for massive growth. The company's launch of the Honor 9i there may be identified as an attempt to gain a strategic stronghold in that market.

Chinese manufacturers Huawei are set to focus on the Indian market, according to Huawei India's CEO, Jay Chen. The company has reportedly identified the Indian market as one with potential for improving its global market share.

Huawei's growth has been nothing short of meteoric, with the company's strong grip on the Chinese market ensuring that it was able to it snatch a place as the second largest smartphone company in the world over giants Apple. That position will, of course, be duly returned in the coming months, as Apple's launch of the iPhones last month ensures that its market share surpasses Huawei's once again.

While Huawei may be a top dog globally, its prowess in the Indian market is lackluster at best, with manufacturers like Samsung, Xiaomi, OPPO, and Lenovo having a pseudo-monopoly of the market. The company, last week, released its mid-range Honor 9i exclusively for the Indian market, and it looks like that will be the first in a series of steps to carve out a niche in that market. This comes after reports of a deal between the Chinese company and AT&T that would also allow the manufacturers a way into the competitive US ecosystem.
