Smartphone users worldwide 2016-2023

How many people have smartphones worldwide?

The number of smartphone users worldwide today surpasses three billion and is forecast to further grow by several hundred million in the next few years. China, India, and the United States are the countries with the highest number of smartphone users, with a combined 1.46 billion users.

Smartphone unit sales levelling off

The smartphone market still has high growth potential as the smartphone penetration rate is still lower than 70 percent in many highly populated countries, in particular China and India. The revenue of the global smartphone market continued to increase over the last few years, despite stagnating unit sales, due to a growing average selling price of smartphones.

Leading smartphone vendors

The leading smartphone vendors today are Samsung, Apple, and Huawei. Taken together, the three technology companies account for about half of all smartphone shipments worldwide. The three vendors combined shipped shipped 662.5 million smartphones in 2019, although Apple and Huawei experienced a decline in sales from the previous year.
