BlackBerry 10: RIM’s Last, Best Hope to Challenge Apple/Samsung and Apple/Google Smartphone DuopoliesJanuary 29, 2013With the introduction of its BlackBerry 10, Research In Motion Ltd. is making the final charge in its struggle to become the third viable smartphone brand alongside market giants Apple Inc. and Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., as well as the No. 3 operating system vendor after Apple and Google Inc.'s Android.
"This year we will see multiple attempts to fight the Samsung/Apple smartphone duopoly in smartphone hardware—along with the twin Google/Apple duopoly in smartphone operating systems,” said Ian Fogg, senior principal analyst at IHS. “Because of the fast-rising adoption of smartphones, 2013 represents the last, best hope for RIM's BlackBerry 10—along with endangered specimens like Microsoft's Windows Phone, Nokia's Lumia and Mozilla's Firefox—to create a viable third smartphone competitor in the market."
4G Wireless Spectrum Auction Will Determine Winners and Losers in the UK Mobile MarketJanuary 25, 2013The auction of coveted 4G spectrum that is now underway in the United Kingdom represents a critical juncture for country’s wireless market, with the winners set to gain access to data bandwidth essential for meet burgeoning demand for mobile data services.
Chiefly driven by smartphones, U.K. mobile data traffic will rise by more than 400 percent from 2012 to 2016, according to a new report from the IHS Screen Digest Mobile Technology Intelligence Service at information and analytics provider IHS (NYSE: IHS). IHS forecasts mobile data traffic in the country will rise to 1.4 billion gigabytes in 2016, up from 274 million gigabytes in 2012.
The auction features 2.6Ghz spectrum best suited for urban deployments and scarce spectrum at the 800MHz band, which is especially suitable for delivering wireless services in rural areas. This makes 800MHz desirable for any nationwide deployment of 4G.
Global LTE Subscribers Set to More Than Double in 2013 and Exceed 100 MillionJanuary 22, 2013Just three short years after the technology’s original deployment, worldwide subscribers to the 4G wireless standard known as Long Term Evolution (LTE) are projected to surpass the 100-million mark this year
LTE subscribers worldwide will reach 198.1 million in 2013, up a remarkable 115 percent from 92.3 million last year, according to an IHS iSuppli Wireless Communications Special Report from information and analytics provider IHS (NYSE: IHS).
Since being adopted in 2010 with just 612,000 users, the 4G next-generation wireless technology has grown by leaps and bounds, surging by an astounding factor of 22 to 13.2 million subscribers in 2011, and then jumping another 599 percent in 2012 to nearly 100 million subscribers. By 2016, LTE will claim more than 1.0 billion users, as shown in the figure below, equivalent to a five-year compound annual growth rate of 139 percent.
Intel Targets Fast-Growing, Low-End Smartphone Market with New Atom Processor PlatformJanuary 16, 2013Intel Corp.’s introduction of a new Atom processor platform designed to target the fast-growing market for low-end smartphones in emerging economies represents a shrewd strategy that could allow the company to expand its currently minimal market share in the industry, according to the IHS iSuppli/Screen Digest Mobile & Wireless Service at IHS (NYSE: IHS). Intel rolled out the new processor platform at a major event at last week’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
The platform—formerly known as Lexington— is aimed at developing regions of the world, where consumers are demanding low-cost smartphones that deliver high performance and a full feature set.
IHS iSuppli and IHS Screen Digest Issue Fast Facts on Major Trends at CES 2013January 07, 2013A Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) representative at a press conference on Sunday said the technology industry has entered the "post-smartphone era" when communication functions such as calls and texting are no longer the main focus for smartphones.
Samsung Displaces Nokia as Top Cellphone Brand in 2012 and Takes Decisive Smartphone Lead Over AppleDecember 18, 2012For the first time in 14 years, wireless communications giant Nokia will not sit atop the global cellphone business on an annual basis at the end of 2012—with Samsung set to seize the mobile handset market’s top rank.
Samsung is expected to account for 29 percent of worldwide cellphone shipments, up from 24 percent in 2011, according to the IHS iSuppli Mobile and Wireless Communications Service at information and analytics provider IHS (NYSE: IHS). Nokia’s share this year will drop to 24 percent, down from 30 percent last year.
Mobile Communications Equipment Market Set for Double Digit Growth This YearNovember 27, 2012Despite soft macroeconomic conditions, the market for mobile communications equipment will grow by a robust 13 percent this year, propelled by climbing shipments of mobile handsets and tablets, particularly devices supporting the 4G long term evolution (LTE) wireless standard.
Total factory revenue from original equipment manufacturers making mobile communications equipment is projected to reach $376 billion by year-end, up from $334 billion in 2011, according to an IHS iSuppli Wireless Systems Market Tracker report from information and analytics provider IHS (NYSE: IHS). Next year, overall revenue for mobile communications equipment is forecast to rise to $444 million.
Analysis of U.S. Security Warning on Chinese Telecom Equipment ProvidersOctober 08, 2012Citing security concerns, the U.S. House of Representatives Intelligence Committee on Monday warned American telecommunications operators not to do business with China's leading communications equipment makers. However, the U.S. telcos already were reticent to purchase equipment from the top Chinese firms—Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. and ZTE Corp.—due to scrutiny from the American government. Because of this, the committee’s announcement may not have a major negative impact on current sales levels of China’s equipment providers. However, it could deal a further setback to Huawei’s and ZTE’s efforts to penetrate the American market in the future.
iPhone 5 to Spur Record Apple Smartphone Shipments in Q4September 12, 2012The iPhone 5 represents a strong smartphone launch by Apple. IHS forecasts the iPhone 5 will be a major success in the market, helping to drive Apple’s smartphone shipments in 2012 to 149 million units, up 60 percent from 93 million in 2011
Historically, the release of a new iPhone hasgenerated a large quarter-on-quarter surge in iPhone sales. Apple's release strategy plays a major role in this upwelling, as prospective buyers hold off on purchasing during the time leading up to the rollout of the new device. This phenomenon depressed iPhone sales in the second quarter of this year.
Cumulative Android Smartphone Shipments Will Exceed 1 Billion in 2013September 11, 2012Just five years after Google Inc.’s Android appeared on the market in 2008, IHS forecasts that cumulative global shipments of smartphones using the operating system since it was introduced will amount to more than 1 billion in 2013.
Worldwide annual unit shipments of Android phones will rise to 451 million in 2013, up from 357 million in 2012, according to an IHS iSuppli Wireless Communications Smartphone Report from information and analytics provider IHS (NYSE: IHS). These massive totals will mean that combined shipments for every year since the first smartphone using Android shipped in 2008 will reach 1.1 billion by the end of 2013, as presented in the figure below. In contrast, the No. 2 smartphone operating system, Apple Inc.’s iOS, will amount to 527 million in cumulative shipments in 2013 and won’t reach the 1 billion level until 2015.
Fast Facts on Apple’s iPhone 5 AnnouncementSeptember 11, 2012The arrival of the iPhone 5 will spur a rebound in Apple’s smartphone shipments in the third and fourth quarters following a decline in the second quarter. Apple in the second quarter suffered a 26 percent drop in shipments to 26 million units, down from 35 million in the first quarter.
“Apple’s smartphone shipments typically are weak during the quarter preceding the launch of a new iPhone model,” said Wayne Lam, senior analyst, wireless communications, for IHS. “Buyers historically have delayed their purchases until the newest model is available. Then they rush out to get the latest and greatest version once it’s being sold, leading to a spike in demand. IHS predicts the same pattern will occur with the iPhone 5.”
Subscriptions to Cloud Storage Services to Reach Half-Billion Level This YearSeptember 06, 2012Consumer subscriptions to cloud-based storage services are experiencing booming growth, with the global total rising to 500 million this year, spurring companies of all sizes and descriptions to enter the market.
A total of 500 million personal cloud storage subscriptions are expected this year, up from less than 300 million in 2011, according to insights from the IHS iSuppli Mobile and Wireless Communications Service at information and analytics provider IHS (NYSE: IHS). The subscriptions are expected to jump to 625 million next year, a solid increase of 25 percent, with uninterrupted double-digit growth anticipated to follow until at least 2017. During that year, subscriptions to cloud storage are projected to hit 1.3 billion, as presented in the figure below.
Wireless Infrastructure Gear Market Lifted by LTE in 2012August 30, 2012Global spending by wireless carriers on infrastructure equipment is expected to rise a solid 8.3 percent this year and reach $45.5 billion, driven primarily by investments among carriers in developed nations on the next-generation 4G long term evolution (LTE) technology, according to an IHS iSuppli Wireless Communications Special Report from information and analytics provider IHS (NYSE: IHS).
The spending on infrastructure, considered a bellwether for gauging the overall prospects of the wireless industry moving forward, continues the strong 7.7 percent expansion of last year, when carrier expenditures amounted to $42.0 billion. Growth will moderate somewhat during the next few years to the 3.0 percent range, with total carrier spending on infrastructure equipment reaching $50.6 billion by 2016.
Rapid Advance of LTE Spurs Convergence of Electronic ProductsAugust 29, 2012With its worldwide subscriber rolls expected to quadruple this year and increase by a factor of 70 by 2016, 4G long term evolution (LTE) will play a pivotal role in the development of the wireless industry by driving the convergence of electronic devices, including smartphones, media tablets and mobile PCs.
Global 4G LTE subscribers this year are forecast to reach 73.3 million, up a whopping 334 percent from 16.9 million in 2011, according to an IHS iSuppli Consumer and Communications Market Tracker Report from information and analytics provider IHS (NYSE: IHS). Another round of impressive triple-digit growth, equivalent to 181 percent, is expected in 2013 when 4G LTE subscribers total 205.7 million. By 2016, 4G LTE subscribers will reach nearly 1.2 billion strong, as shown in the figure below.
Smartphones See Accelerated Rise to DominanceAugust 28, 2012
Driven by increased demand from developed regions for high-end models, along with an unexpectedly strong push from emerging economies for lower-cost products, smartphones are expected to rise to account for the majority of global cellphone shipments in 2013—two years earlier than previously predicted.
Smartphone shipments in 2013 are forecast to account for 54 percent of the total cellphone market, up from 46 percent in 2012 and 35 percent in 2011, according to an IHS iSuppli Wireless Communications Market Tracker Report from information and analytics provider IHS (NYSE: IHS). The year 2013 will mark the first time that smartphones will make up more than half of all cellphone shipments.
China: Where the iPhone is an Also-RanAugust 23, 2012Consumers everywhere love the iPhone, with its strong sales in almost every region of the world, keeping Apple Inc. in first or second place in the global smartphone rankings. However, there is one country where Apple isn’t No. 1 or No. 2—and doesn’t rank even among the Top 5.
Are we talking about some obscure nation where the locals don’t have access to essentials like iPhones?
No, we’re talking about the world’s most populous and economically vibrant country: China.
In China, Apple ranked in seventh place among smartphone brands during the first half of 2012
Samsung Regains Smartphone LeadershipJuly 26, 2012
Six months after losing the top position in the smartphone market to Apple, Samsung in the second quarter regained leadership as its sales rose 5 percent to 36 million units, up from 34 million in the first quarter. Meanwhile, Apple suffered a 26 percent decline in shipments to 26 million units, down from 35 million in the first quarter.
Samsung’s modest increase was propelled by strong growth in high-end smartphone shipments.
Apple’s shipments in the second quarter were impacted by a combination of factors, including macroeconomic variables, increased competition from newer smartphone offerings and delayed purchasing among consumers who are waiting for the availability of the next iPhone model. All this led to a buildup of channel inventory, resulting in lower-than-expected iPhone volumes.
China’s Domestic PC Shipments Rise at Triple the Global Rate in 2012July 17, 2012China’s domestic PC shipments in 2012 are set to rise at three times the rate of the global market, driven by strong economic growth and insatiable demand from the commercial sector, according to an IHS iSuppli China Research report from information and analytics provider IHS (NYSE: IHS).
PC shipments for consumption in China for 2012 are projected to reach 83.6 million units, up 13.1 percent from 73.9 million units last year. In comparison, global shipments are set to increase by only 4.4 percent this year.
Domestic shipments of both desktop and notebook PCs to the Chinese market have been growing at robust double-digit rates for several years, and the healthy pace of expansion is set to continue for at least two more years before the market moderates slightly to a 9 percent increase in 2015.
Gray Market for Mobile Cellphones Serves as Boon to Low-Cost Flash MemoryMay 17, 2012The massive gray market for cellphones is propelling sales of lower-cost flash memories like embedded multimedia card (eMMC) and serial peripheral interface (SPI) NOR, as manufacturers of the unregulated phones strive to keep production costs low.
Shipments of gray market cellphones are set to amount to 210 million units in 2012, representing 13 percent of the global mobile handset business, according to an IHS iSuppli Mobile & Embedded Memory Market Brief from information and analytics provider IHS (NYSE: IHS). While this is down from the peak year of 2011, when gray market totaled 250 million units, shipments are set to remain high, amounting to 189 million units, or 11 percent of the global cellphone shipments in 2013.
No Contest: Apple iOS to Maintain Tablet Dominance in 2012May 15, 2012After suffering a temporary dip in market share in the fourth quarter of 2011, Apple Inc.’s iOS is expected to reassert its commanding leadership of the worldwide tablet space in 2012, according to an IHS iSuppli Worldwide Tablet Market Tracker report from information and analytics provider IHS (NYSE: IHS).
After dipping to 55.1 percent in the fourth quarter of 2011, according to a final estimate, the Apple operating system’s share of worldwide tablet sales—a segment including both media tablets and PC-type tablets—is set to recover to 61 percent for the full year of 2012, about the same portion it had in 2011.
