Ryan Reith, IDC’s group vice president, highlighted the ongoing recovery in the smartphone market, especially among major brands like Samsung.

Reith sees the future dominated by the market consolidation of major players during the growing recovery stage, with smaller brands inevitably struggling to establish a position in the conditions created. According to Nabila Popal, research director of IDC’s Worldwide Tracker team, two noticeable trends have already become visible: an increasing value of a device led by higher average selling prices resulting from consumers’ preference for premium, longer-used products and a change in power balance within the top 5 companies. The development seems likely to persist and even accelerate with the adaptation of companies’ strategies to the early recovery conditions, with Popal stressing that the described trends are there to stay as long as the market is in the process.
