Because the labor is cheaper. According the the CEO.

Yes, it's a cycle. First it was China, then it's India, next could be Vietnam/Bangladesh/Phillipines, some other country that needs to put it's people in employment and gain capital from it.

China and India has a huge population as well. Indian middle class is rapidly rising.

Things would be different in Vietnam and Phillipines.

It's all over the place already. My Samsung phone and Sony headphones are made in Vietnam.

West Africa's gonna be it one of these days. Rapidly growing population/economies, increasing access to electricity, internet, etc, much closer to Western markets than Asia

It's not the only reason. During Covid there were repeated lockdowns in China, and foreign corporations have become more hesitant about relying on Chinese subsidiaries and suppliers in their supply chains. At the same time infrastructure and education in India has dramatically improved, making it a more attractive option. There are still many places with much cheaper labour.

But India isn’t much better. Just give them time, they will outpace China in those respects.
