by Rajeev Nair | Jun 19, 2016

Global handset revenues witnessed an annual decline for the second straight quarter in a row, in Q1 2016. The decline in the quarter was to the tune of -8%. Apple continued to maintain the leading position overall globally. The vendor also led in four of the six regions, despite its volumes taking a dip in all the regions compared to Q1 2015. Together with Samsung, we estimate the two having captured 64% of the worldwide handset revenues in Q1 2016 and the duopoly like situation is expected to continue further in the year.

Most of the top vendors have witnessed a decline in revenues in the quarter. More detailed analysis in our recent  report, from the Handset Country Share Tracker (HCST) service. The report is a vital tool for monitoring the financial health and handset pricing of leading brands such as Apple, Samsung, Huawei, Lenovo-Motorola, ZTE and others across different regions.
