 Mobile phone imports in Pakistan witness a remarkable surge

During the current fiscal year, mobile phone imports in Pakistan have witnessed a remarkable surge, exceeding 100% and totaling $1.148 billion. This spike in imports comes despite the growth of the domestic mobile phone manufacturing industry.

Data from the Federal Bureau of Statistics (FBS) underscores a strong consumer inclination towards imported smartphones and iPads. Analysts attribute this trend to various factors.

One plausible explanation is that locally manufactured phones may not fully meet consumer demands, particularly regarding advanced features or popular international brands.

Moreover, perceptions regarding brand reliability and trust in foreign manufacturers could influence purchasing decisions significantly.

The data suggests a potential mismatch between domestic production and consumer preferences. This raises questions about whether the limited variety of local phones or issues related to price competitiveness contributes to this disparity.
