Cellular companies, operating in Pakistan, have locally manufactured around 18.87 million mobile phone sets after the introduction of Mobile Manufacturing Policy in June 2020 to encourage local production.

An official of PTA said in 2020, the number of locally manufactured mobile sets was 13.05 million which reached 18.87 million in the first ten months of the current year.
