In Gartner expect the growth of the smartphone market this year
Experts of the analytical company Gartner predict that global sales of smartphones in 2021 will reach 1.5 billion units, an increase of 11.4% compared to last year.

If this forecast comes true, smartphone sales in 2021 will approach the level of 2019. In 2020, the market declined by 10.5%, due to the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Consumers have reduced spending on smartphones in 2020, but the introduction of new models will lead to a significant increase in demand in 2021," said Anshul Gupta, senior director of research at Gartner. "The pent-up demand for replacements and the availability of low-cost 5G-enabled smartphones will help boost sales."

Analysts believe that the growing deployment of 5G networks, combined with a large variety of 5G smartphones priced from $ 200, will drive demand. They predict that in 2021, sales of 5G smartphones worldwide will amount to 539 million units, or 35% of total sales.
