Moreover, routers with features such as WLAN and external antenna accounted for more than 75 percent of the market share for the Indian router market.

The routers within the price range of INR 1500-2000 amounted to more than 35 percent of total unit shipments.

Growth drivers

Increased networking needs with activities such as browsing internet over smart phones, laptops and tablets, and playing games online with multiple players, have fuelled the demand for high performance network routers which provide maximum features with a reasonable price tag. The demand for cloud based networking services has also acted as key growth driver for the Indian router market.
