In 2014, the number of smartphone users was not significant in India. Rural areas are still deprived of smartphones, and some don’t know or have seen a smartphone in real. With the government change, India’s #MakeinIndia and #DigitalIndia projects empowered the digital age making 504 Million active internet users from 233 million in 2014. The telecom industry, Reliance Jio, reportedly changed the digital age and gave the internet in the hands of every Indian. The app market in India significantly grew because of more smartphones users. According to the World Bank, India added 500 million-plus smartphone users between 2015 and 2020.
Before the digital age, businesses were not active on the technology side. However, with the increased users of smartphones, businesses assured the requirement of digital teams and agencies to keep with the trend. Now, most startups take assistance from the government and technology to deploy their ideas.
