Global Smartphone Shipment Will Grow +5% in 2018

by Linda Sui | Dec 08, 2017

Strategy Analytics Wireless Smartphone Strategies (WSS) service forecast global smartphone shipment will grow +5% in 2018, remaining a healthy trajectory in the following five quarters.

Central Eastern Europe region and Central Latin America region rebounded back strong this year with higher growth rate, while we expect Africa Middle East will post the above average growth rate in 2018 mainly due to lower smartphone penetration rate.

Apple and Chinese vendors, including Huawei, OPPO, Xiaomi, vivo, Transsion and Lenovo-Motorola etc., as well as Nokia (HMD) will be among the main vendors driving growth through 2018, with their 4G LTE products portfolios across multiple segments.
