"We expect that the outlook for smartphone sales worldwide in 2020 will be markedly different to our February 2020 forecast; we now predict a 15% year-on-year decline in smartphone unit sales in 2020."

Analysys Mason published its annual smartphone devices forecast in February 2020, which included a forecast for smartphone unit sales in every region worldwide. In this update, we discuss and evaluate how the COVID-19 outbreak has affected smartphone sales and provide a data annex outlining our forecast changes.

This report provides:

  • data on the number of smartphone shipments by region between 2017 and 2024
  • analysis of how and why our smartphone sales forecast has been updated in light of the COVID-19 pandemic
  • commentary on smartphone shipments for every region worldwide.
