History and operationsEdit

PTron was founded in 2014 by Ameen Khwaja, CEO of Palred Electronics (a subsidiary of Palred Technologies). In 2015, it opened an office in Shenzhen, China[7] and began manufacturing products from there. In its first two years of launch, the company claimed to have recorded 50 crore in sales, (as of 2019, equals US $7.04 million) having sold more than one million products.[2] As of 2019, the company has sold over 5 million mobile accessories including headphones, bluetooth audio devices, smartwatches and power banks.[2][1][8] The company initially sold products through its retail platform LatestOne, before expanding to other e-commerce platforms such as Amazon, Flipkart and Snapdeal.[1][9][10]

As of 2019, PTron sells its products in various countries such as United States, Canada, Italy, Myanmar, Hong Kong, Israel and Indonesia.[1] According to Khwaja, Hyderabad, Chennai and Delhi are the major markets for the company within India, while selling products through more than 1000 offline stores in other cities.[1][11] By 2018, the company had more than 40 distributors in 12 states in India.[5]

In August 2019, PTron announced its plans to set up an assembly plant in Hyderabad (under Make in India)[12] which is expected to handle two-thirds of its manufacturing requirements.[1] In October 2019, PTron launched Bass Buds TWS (True Wireless Stereo) earbuds which sold over 10,000 units within the first three days.[13] In August 2020, the company signed up Bollywood actor Aparshakti Khurana to endorse the brand.[14] PTron registered sales of 7.87 lakh units in the second quarter of FY 2020–21, up from 2.67 lakh units in the first quarter.[6][15][16] In July 2021, Pooja Hegde signed as new brand ambassador.[17]
