Worldwide Monthly Mobile Phone Pricing Watch

Every quarter, thousands of different mobile phone models are sold by over 300 vendors across the globe. Not surprisingly, keeping track of competitive mobile phone prices by model can be a challenging and expensive proposition for any company. IDC reduces this challenge for our clients by delivering online pricing data though its Worldwide Monthly Mobile Phone Pricing Watch.

Every month IDC captures over 40,000 smartphone prices from over 350 ecommerce websites across 30 countries. The data is cleaned and mapped to IDC tracker taxonomy and then delivered in a comprehensive format so that our clients can make pricing comparisons and management decisions with timely and accurate information.

This monthly pricing service is a complementary tool to IDC's core mobile phone tracker for analyzing the complete online pricing ecosystem.
