About This Statistic

Samsung smartphone sales – additional information

Just over a billion smartphones were sold to end users worldwide in the first three quarters of 2015 alone. The smartphone industry is expected to continue to grow, as the number of smartphone users worldwide is forecast to exceed two billion by 2016. The global smartphone market is still dominated by two major vendors, Apple and Samsung. Together, they held almost 40 percent of the market share in 2015. Chinese smartphone vendors Huawei, Lenovo and Xiaomi have slowly gained market share in the global smartphone sector, making up for 18 percent of the global market share together.

More than 1.8 billion smartphones are expected to be shipped worldwide by 2019, a projected growth of more than 400 million units in comparison to the 2015 figure. Samsung leads the industry in terms of shipments. The company’s figures have been increasing at a fast pace in the recent years, allowing Samsung to distant itself from its competitors. The South Korean company went from shipping 2.4 million smartphones worldwide in the first quarter of 2010 to over 85 million units in the last quarter of 2015 alone. In 2015, Apple shipped, on average, nearly 58 million units per quarter.

Much of the Samsung’s success in the smartphone industry can be attributed to the introduction of the Galaxy smartphone line in 2009. Thanks to this product line, the company has taken the lead in global sales figures for smartphones in 2011. Galaxy S, Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini, Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 are a few the Galaxy models produced by Samsung.
