Worldwide sales of smartphones to end users are on track to reach 1.57 billion units in 2020, an increase of 3 percent year over year, according to Gartner. In 2019, worldwide smartphone sales declined 2 percent, the first time since 2008 that the global smartphone market experienced a decline. The researchers forecast that sales of 5G mobile phones will total 221 million units in 2020 — which will account for 12 percent of overall mobile phone sales — and more than double in 2021, to 489 million units.
