Lets Look into Google Public Data to see How INDIA has faired in the last few years against China.
US has reached its Saturation Point now as most of the users in US have a mobile. INDIA have not reach 100% Population yet and is around 65% mark. By 2025 we might reach 100% Mobile users in INDIA. By 2035 – 120% (20% Population will have 2 phones) of the population might have a Mobile Phone. That is around 1.4 – 1.5 billion users in INDIA alone. Now That is HUGE. (looking at Google Forecast on Indian Population – by the way we will surpass China by around 2035)
