According to the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority, domestic manufacturing firms manufactured/assembled 15.61 million mobile phones during the first eight months of 2022 (January-August), compared to 1.21 million imported commercially (PTA).

In August 2022, local manufacturing plants produced/assembled 0.67 million mobile phone devices.

Local manufacturing facilities produced 24.66 million mobile phone handsets in calendar year 2021, up from 13.05 million in 2020, representing an 88 percent increase.

According to PTA data, commercial imports of mobile phone handsets rose at 10.26 million in 2021, up from 24.51 million in 2020.

The 15.61 million cellphones manufactured/assembled domestically include 8.85 million 2G and 6.76 million smartphones. Furthermore, according to PTA data, 54 percent of mobile devices in Pakistan are smartphones, while 46 percent are 2G.

Despite an increase in local manufacturing, Pakistan imported mobile phones worth $101.864 million for the first two months (July-August) of the current fiscal year 2022-23. According to Pakistan Bureau of Statistics (PBS), mobile phone imports increased by 62.51 percent month on month (MoM) in August 2022, reaching $63.060 million from $38.804 million in July 2022.

PTA Approved Mobile Phone Policy Benefits:

The effective implementation of the Device Identification, Registration, and Blocking System (DIRBS), as well as supportive government regulations, such as the mobile manufacturing policy, has provided a favorable climate for mobile device manufacture in Pakistan.

It has also benefited Pakistan’s mobile ecosystem by eliminating the counterfeit device market, creating a fair playing field for commercial organizations, and building consumer trust through the development of standardized legal routes for all types of device imports.
