Forecast of smartphone user numbers in the United Kingdom (UK) 2015-2022 This statistic displays a forecast of the development in smartphone user numbers in the United Kingdom (UK) from 2015 to 2022. In 2022, the number of monthly active smartphone users is projected to grow steadily and reach 53.96 million individuals. This would be an increase of over 12 million new users from 41.09 million users in 2015.
