Smartphone shipments expected to double by 2016

Thursday 13 September 2012 | 09:51 CET | News
Smartphone shipments are forecast to reach 567 million in 2012 and nearly to double by 2016 as new phones, like this week's iPhone 5, continue to enter the market, according to NPD DisplaySearch. Despite the excitement surrounding the new iPhone, the volume of smartphone shipments is lower than expected, with NPD DisplaySearch downgrading its 2012 forecast of new purchases from 220-230 million to 177 million. The volume of replacement phones is also expected to increase as new smartphones enter the market.
