Global smartphone sales – additional information

The number of smartphones sold worldwide reached a new high in 2015 with about 1.4 billion units. That same year, about every fourth person in the world had access to a smartphone. The upward trend in global smartphone sales revenue since 2013 is, however, projected to plateau in 2016 at about 400 billion U.S. dollars. By this time, around a quarter of the global revenue from smartphone sales worldwide is estimated to be generated in China, amounting to more than 110 billion U.S. dollars. The United States, as the second most profitable smartphone market, is projected to reach 55 billion U.S. dollars in sales in 2016.

Smartphones that run the Android operating system are currently the most popular with a 85 percent share on the global market. Android has consistently held a dominant position in smartphone sales worldwide over the last 10 years. In the first quarter of 2016, more Android devices were sold than Windows, iOS and Blackberry OS devices combined. Apple’s iOS operating system is currently the second most-used in the world. iPhone sales have risen strongly over the years. In the first quarter of 2016, Apple sold more than 70 million units of the iPhone, which accounted for roughly 68 percent of Apple’s total revenue.
