By: Bryan BassettSenior Research Analyst, Enterprise Mobility, Anthony ScarsellaResearch Director, Mobile Phones


This IDC study presents the five-year forecast for the worldwide business use of smartphone shipments by operating system and user type (consumer, individual liable, and corporate liable). It is part of IDC's continuing research with respect to mobile devices. Findings in this document are based on information gathered from primary and secondary sources during the past six months.

"The worldwide business use smartphone market has been negatively impacted by the effects of COVID-19 in 2020 from both a supply chain and buyer demand perspective," said Bryan Bassett, senior research analyst, IDC's Enterprise Mobility: Deployment Strategies program. "While organizations look to reduce IT spending heading into 2021, businesses are signaling they will prioritize mobile security and management software solutions over new hardware purchases in the near term to better secure and manage the influx of remote and work-from-home (WFH) workers."
