Smartphone Shipment To Eeach 1.7Billions In 2017

Summary: Global shipment of smartphones will be driven by strong growth in emerging markets, with China leading the way in adoption and development of devices.

Globally smart phone shipment will reach 1.7 billion units in 2017, driven by growth from growing marketplaces especially Chinese suppliers.

In a statement Monday, specialist firm Egg said growing marketplaces last year taken into account 160 thousand of 450 thousand cellular phone gadgets marketed worldwide. Chinese suppliers taken into account about 66 percent of cellular phone gadgets marketed in developing marketplaces, it included.

Shiv Putcha, Egg principal specialist for telecommunications growing marketplaces, said: "China is at the center of smart phone growth and adopting in growing marketplaces, with the whole environment increasingly geared toward the production of feature-rich cost-effective gadgets. This new wave of cost-effective cellular phone gadgets will have a significant effect on consumer choice in growing marketplaces."

Despite the emergence of cheaper entry-level gadgets with a sub-US$100 price tag, Egg noted that smart phone cost remains a big issue in most growing marketplaces. "Operator subsidies for cellular phone gadgets are uncommon in growing marketplaces and this has hampered smart phone adopting," it included.

Thus significant chipset and platform providers such as Mediatek and Qualcomm have a significant effect on both smart phone availability and cost, as they provide reference designs to their device OEM (original devices manufacturer) partners and reduce limitations to access.

Putcha said: "While much of this growth is occurring in Chinese suppliers, local brands from other growing marketplaces are also adopting this model. Other growing marketplaces that will show strong growth include India and Philippines, followed by Brazil and Russia."

Putcha included the growth of cellular phone gadgets in growing marketplaces will see a corresponding growth in on the internet solutions such as cloud, storage, and purchasing based on cellular money transactions, while OEMs and devices providers will also increase their presence in on the internet solutions.

However, cellular operators looking to profit from growth of low-cost cellular phone gadgets in growing marketplaces with white-labeled gadgets will struggle to gain traction, he included.
