Apple to Post the Record High Handset Market Share in South Korea

by Woody Oh | Feb 13, 2018

According to the recently-posted report, Global Handset Vendor Marketshare for 15 Countries : Q4 2017, published under our Handset Country Share Tracker (HCST), Apple posted the record-high market share in South Korea's handset market during the latest Q4 2017.

Apple's superb market share was estimated to benefit from (1) stronger popularity of the latest flagship, iPhone X, during the quarter, and (2) declining market share of LG in its home market.

The first official Apple Store, launched around three weeks ago in South Korea, is expected to help strengthen Apple's presence while LG is expected to keep struggling unless something innovative hits the market in 2018.

The in-detail handset volume and market share by vendor by countries can be viewed at the below report link.
