2.2% Cell Phone Sales Contraction in 2009

23 декабря 2008

After finishing 2008 by shipping more than 1.2 billion units, up 7.3% from last year, the global mobile phone industry will sell 2.2% fewer devices in 2009 but will rebound with 7.7% in 2010, IDC said.

Particularly telling is the gap between smartphones and traditional phones. Smartphones grew 27% this year, now accounting for around 12% of all cell phones, while growth continues at a slower rate of 8.9% in 2009. Feature phones grew just 4.9% this year and that market will contract by 3.8% in 2009.

In the
United States, the smartphone market grew a massive 75.7% in 2008, but will only grow 3.1% next year. Feature phones sales contracted by 9.8% this year and will shrink another 11.6% next year.

Announcements from component makers such as MediaTek, Qualcomm and Texas Instruments were an ominous sign, said senior analyst Ryan Reith, adding that markets are even shrinking for low-end phones in
China and India. However, the market’s limited growth will mean lower prices for consumers, he added.
