By: Anthony ScarsellaResearch Manager, Mobile Phones, William StofegaProgram Director, Mobile Device Technology and Trends


This IDC study provides an analysis of vendor performance in the worldwide smartphone market in 2019.

"2019 represented the first time we have witnessed the trifecta of ASPs, units, and values all declining from the previous year," says Anthony Scarsella, research manager for IDC's Mobile Phones team. "Shipments continued to struggle in 2019 as consumers in the United States and China continue to hold off on upgrades causing over a 7% decline in each respected market. The impact of 5G devices, which only made up 1.2% of the total market, will undoubtedly bring revenue growth (4.9%) back to the market in 2020 despite shipments declining (-2.3%) once again."
