In an effort to become a force to reckon with in the Sri Lankan market, Intex Technologies, a leading Indian mobile handset and consumer durables major, has entered into a strategic partnership with the island country’s top business conglomerate – Softlogic Communications Pvt Ltd, a fully owned subsidiary of Softlogic Holdings PLC to aggressively target a major share of the nation’s mobile handset business market. 
The joint-venture is solely for the mobile handset business of Intex namely, feature phones and smartphones. 
Intex is an established affordable brand in India, known for democratizing smartphones for all, especially the youth with its innovative, competitively priced products and a superlative service experience. As per IDC’s Q4 2016 report, Intex was rated the number one Indian mobile handset player commanding a market share of around 10 percent.
The partnership with Softlogic has been done with the aim of attaining a sizeable share in Sri Lanka that has a market size of 4-5 million handsets annually. This objective will be supported by aggressive marketing and having a strong market presence by working on retail and distribution development.
