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.
