Which is the most imported mobile brand in Nepal? Here are the statistics
Kathmandu. There is competition between Samsung and Xiaomi in terms of mobile sales in the Nepalese market. For a long time Samsung was proclaiming itself to be number one in the Nepalese market. But for some time now, Xiaomi has been claiming to be number one in terms of market share.

There is no reliable data on the market share of any brand in the Nepalese mobile market. However, the Nepal Telecom Authority, the regulatory body of the telecom sector, has made public the details of mobile handsets imported to Nepal. NEA has started IMEI registration of mobiles over the years by making Equipment Identity Register (EIR) mandatory.

This means that mobile phones cannot be imported into Nepal without IMEI registration in the system. In that regard, the mobile import data released by the NEA can be taken as the official data.

According to the annual report of the NEA, a total of 19,19,575 IMEIs have been registered in Nepal in the financial year 2077/07. The report states that most itel mobiles have IMEI registration. According to the NEA, 17 percent of the total registered IMEIs are from iTel Mobiles.

Similarly, Saomi is in second place. Saomi accounts for 13% of the total IMEI numbers. Indian mobile brand Lava is third on the list after Samsung. Lava topped the list last year. Similarly, Samsung is at number four. Samsung’s total stake is 8 percent. Mobiles of the Colors and Tambo brands are at the fifth position with 7 per cent share.

Most of the mobile phones that have arrived after paying customs duty are registered with the IMEI authority. But mobiles not registered with the authority are not included.
