Samsung’s smartphone market share – additional information

The smartphone market has drastically changed since 2009. Nokia used to lead the industry with almost 50 percent of the smartphone market share in 2007, but the company’s market presence dropped to nearly three percent in 2013. Apple and Samsung have remained amongst the top five smartphone vendors in the world since 2009. Samsung’s Galaxy, first released in 2009, is their main line of smartphone products, while Apple heavily invests on the iPhone, the company’s primary source of revenue.

Samsung’s smartphone market share increased significantly in a time span of three years, going from three percent in the second quarter of 2009 to 32.2 percent in the second quarter of 2012.

Samsung shipped more smartphones than Lenovo, Huawei and Xiaomi combined. Apple remains a distant second, with about 216 million iPhones shipped worldwide and around 15 percent of the market share in 2017.
