In 2021, the worldwide smartphone market will be worth $448 billion. Even as component shortages and Covid-19 restrictions continued to disrupt supply chains around the world, it grew 7% YoY and 20% QoQ, according to a new report released on Friday.

According to Counterpoint, the average selling price (ASP) of smartphones increased by 12% YoY to $322, owing to a bigger share of 5G handsets, which have a substantially higher ASP than 4G models, as well as Apple’s successful launch of its iPhone 13 devices.

Additionally, in 2021, more 5G-enabled models were produced as OEMs such as Xiaomi, Vivo, OPPO, and Realme concentrated on meeting a growing demand for inexpensive 5G smartphones in emerging countries such as India, Southeast Asia, Latin America, and Eastern Europe. As a result, 5G-enabled smartphones will account for more than 40% of worldwide smartphone shipments in 2021, up from 18% in 2020.


Due to the pandemic-related schooling, work, and entertainment from home, there has also been a global growth in demand for mid-range and premium smartphones, persuading some people to upgrade their devices for a better overall experience. Finally, major OEMs have increased the retail pricing of some of their entry and mid-tier smartphones due to a global shortage of smartphone components.

In 2021, iPhone revenue climbed by 35% year over year to $196 billion. In 2021, it accounted for 44% of total worldwide smartphone revenue. Apple’s overall ASP increased by 14% in 2021, reaching $825, thanks to strong demand for 5G-enabled iPhone 12 and 13 models. In addition, the brand increased its market share in important emerging markets like India, Thailand, Vietnam, and Brazil.

Samsung’s smartphone revenue climbed 11% year on year in 2021, to $72 billion, up from $64 billion in 2020. In 2021, its ASP increased by 5% to $263.
