Samsung smartphone sales – additional information

Over 1.2 billion smartphones were sold to end users worldwide in 2016 alone. The smartphone industry is expected to continue to grow, as the number of smartphone users worldwide is forecast to exceed 3.8 billion by 2021. The global smartphone market is dominated by three major vendors: Samsung, Huawei and Apple. Together, they held more than 50 percent of the market share in 2019.

More than 1.57 billion smartphones are expected to be shipped worldwide by 2022, a projected growth of more than 170 million units in comparison to the 2018 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 79 million units in the first quarter of 2017 alone. In 2018, Apple shipped, on average, nearly 52.2 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. The Galaxy S10 series are the newest Galaxy models produced by Samsung.
