BENGALURU: Chinese smartphone-maker Xiaomi said that it generated employment for 50,000 people in India comprising of partners from manufacturing, after sales, offline sales, logistics and corporate employees.

“Xiaomi’s manufacturing partners contribute over 30,000 employees of which more than 95% are women, followed by Authorised Service Center engineers, Repair factory engineers and customer care executives,” the company said in a press release on Wednesday.

It also added that it employs 1000+ people across its corporate headquarters in Bengaluru and over five regional offices.

“In 2014, when we began our journey - it was a one person team where Manu did everything. As we scaled up - we hired and trained talent, and worked closely with our partners to build a strong ecosystem of people to work for Xiaomi,” said Muralikrishnan B, Chief Operations Officer, Xiaomi India

The smartphone brand has the largest market share in India since Q3 2017 and is the number 1 Smart TV brand since Q2 2018 as per IDC Worldwide Quarterly Tracker.

Xiaomi started its manufacturing operations in India in 2015 in partnership with Chinese contract manufacturer Foxconn. Currently, the brand has six manufacturing facilities in Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu.

The India government is pushing smartphone manufacturing in India under its ‘Make in India campaign’ by providing export incentives. This is led to a growth from just two mobile phone manufacturing units in 2014 to 268 mobile handset and accessories manufacturing units in 2019, meaning 95 per cent of mobile phones sold in the country are being produced domestically.
