Samsung grabs record share of German handset market

by Neil Mawston | Sep 19, 2012

According to Strategy Analytics’ Country Share Tracker (CST) service, the German handset market grew by 3% year-on-year, slowing down from the previous quarter’s 9% growth, as the German economy’s relative strength allowed it to out-perform the rest of Europe once more. Samsung jumped to a record German market share following the launch of the Galaxy S3, while most other vendors saw their shares decline across all operators. The launch of strong new smartphones from the likes of Nokia, Apple, LG and Motorola could well reverse this trend in Q3. More analysis of the German handset market can be viewed by clients here.
