Our Q4-2017 Market Monitor report has been published. We release one Infographic in each quarter to summarize the handset and smartphone market activities in a single page.

Some quick observations from this edition: 

  • Global smartphone shipments declined a modest 3% YoY but grew 6% QoQ
  • Top 10 smartphone brands contributed to three fourth of the total smartphone market
  • Apple’s global sales declined a modest 1% but it had the biggest revenue quarter owing to the high increased product mix of iPhone X
  • Xiaomi once again emerged as the fastest growing smartphone brand, and grew by 83% YoY
  • Intense competition in the respective home markets for local brands is forcing them to expand overseas and in neighboring markets to sustain growth
