by Abhilash Kumar | Nov 23, 2021

According to Strategy Analytics, global smartphone shipments declined -8% YoY for October 2021. Sales followed similar trend and was down -7% YoY for the month. The decline in both the sell in and sell through side is driven by the supply constraints and component shortage that is prevalent in the global market in the present scenario. Also, the inflation rate, sluggish economy and third wave of COVID-19 in Europe has slowed down the market. In terms of rankings, Samsung maintained the top position, followed by Apple, Xiaomi, OPPO (including OnePlus) and Vivo etc.
