LONDON – Emerging markets (e.g. Latin America, Asia and Africa) currently display the swiftest growth of the smartphone marketplace, while growth of the total market has become more modest over the recent years.

Consumers in mature markets are more dependent on replacement purchases, and a small number of them become first-time purchasers.

Apple and Samsung are set to maintain their position of the world’s largest suppliers of smartphones, but Chinese companies deepen their footprint in the marketplace since the demand for lower-priced smartphones is increasing. Such Chinese phones see the swiftest demand growth from Southern Asia and India.

Mobile broadband infrastructure’s limitations represent a top threat for the smartphone business.

The 5G technology has recently started to gain increasing attention from pole to pole. In the meantime, LTE continues to make enormous inroads.

At present, there are more than 1 billion LTE subscribers across the globe, and APAC commands the largest share of the world’s LTE subscriptions. Operators have initiated to make LTE-A a key focus.

There were more than 116 LTE-A networks being deployed worldwide in early 2016. VoLTE deployments have also posted a considerable increase.

The number of world’s handset shipments is forecast to be more than 2 billion in 2016.
