Egypt's smartphone phone market has fully recovered from the devastating decline that hit the market in 2017, according to IDC. Its research shows that smartphone shipments to the country increased 16.5 percent in 2019, accelerating from 3.4 percent growth in 2018. That represents a significant turnaround from the 14.4 percent decline seen in 2017, although the global fallout from the Covid-19 outbreak has caused IDC to revise its forecast for the Egyptian market downwards.
