Analysis: Smartphone Distribution Flow and Channel by Region / Country Forecast Report: 2007 to 2025

Report Summary:

COVID-19 will significantly affect smartphone market in 2020, with smartphone sales from "closed" operator channels dropping below the 400 million mark worldwide for the first time in several years. That allows pure e-commercial and electronic retailer channels to surge in practically all regions. Meanwhile, independent retailers still make up a big slice of total smartphone sales in many emerging markets but will see a decline in the long term.

The Smartphone Distribution Flow and Channel by Region / Country report forecasts global smartphone distribution flows by operators channel vs. retailer channel; by online channel vs. offline channel, for 6 regions and 30 countries from 2007 through 2025. It also forecasts global smartphone distribution by 8 sub-channels for 6 major regions and 3 key countries from 2012 to 2025, including North America, Western Europe, Latin America, China, Japan and India. The forecasts can be used by smartphone vendors, vehicle makers, apps developers and others to identify the main regional channels where mobile phones are being sold, and whether operators or retailers are winning the distribution wars.
