Over 5 inch Handsets will Capture 57% of Global Market by 2018

by Woody Oh | Jul 28, 2017

According to the very recent report, 'Handset Sales Forecast by Type : Phablet, Superphone, Smartphone, Feature phone & Basic phone : 2003 to 2022', published under our Emerging Devices Strategies (EDS) service, the bigger-screen handsets with over 5.0 inch display size are expected to take 57% share of all cellular phones sold by the end of next year (2018), growing up to 73% by 2022.

The richer and more comfortable contents (video / education / navigation / game / etc) experience, users' consistent preference for bigger display with comfortable grip feeling and the new shift towards bezeless and full display concept, pioneered by leading vendors such as Samsung and Apple will contribute to stronger market share of over 5.0 inch in the next several years.

The in-detail market share and insights around the handset volume by each display size by region can be viewed at this EDS link.
