India-Made iPhone Exports Meets With Success As China's COVID-19 Lockdowns Weigh

  • Apple Inc's (NASDAQ: AAPL) iPhone exports from India crossed $1 billion in the five months since April.

  • At the current rate, outbound shipments of India-made iPhones, mainly to Europe and the Middle East, are set to reach $2.5 billion in the 12 months through March 2023, Bloomberg reports.

  • That's almost double the $1.3 billion worth of iPhones India exported in the year through March 2022.

  • Apple, which long made most of its iPhones in China, sought alternatives as China clashed with the U.S. government and imposed lockdowns across the country that have hindered economic activity.

  • India manufactured 3 million iPhones in 2021, versus 230 million in China.

  • Apple's critical contract manufacturers Foxconn Technology Co, Ltd (OTC: FXCOF), Wistron Corp (OTC: WICOF), and Pegatron Corp (OTC: PGTRF), currently make iPhones at plants in Southern India. All three won manufacturing incentives under a federal government plan.

  • The devices exported from India from April to August this year comprise iPhone 11, 12, and 13 models, and exports of the new 14 line will begin soon.

  • Beyond smartphones, India chalked out plans to boost the financial incentives for tablet and laptop makers.

  • Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ: GOOG (NASDAQ: GOOGLGoogle urged Indian manufacturers to submit bids to assemble up to 1 million units of its Pixel smartphones. China's strict COVID-19 lockdown caused massive production delays for Google.

  • Vedanta Ltd and Foxconn shared plans to invest $19.5 billion to set up semiconductor plants in India.

  • Price Action: AAPL shares traded higher by 1.73% at $144.90 in the premarket on the last check Tuesday.
