IDC: Smartphone Shipment Volume Expected to Recover

According to IDC market research firm, the global smartphone shipments in 2016 met with a year-over-year growth of only 2.5 percent.

Consumer tablet shipments in India posted a sharp decline of 28% in Q4 2017 when compared to the same period past year.

Gomes also added that the trend will encourage tablet makers to be more aggressive in winning the market share in the commercial segment to sustain in India.

Tablets with 4G based connectivity accounted for around 39.2 percent in Q1 2017, up from 15.3 percent from Q1 2016.

Detachable tablets: IDC did not provide the share of detachable tablets but said it accounted for a "nominal" share of shipments, largely driven by the consumer segment. Acer led the segment, followed by Apple's iPad Pro.

India's tablet market saw a decline of 18.6 per cent on an yearly basis. Although the growth was mostly attributed to commercial shipments, the Galaxy J Max became the company's top selling model once again due to its popuarity among consumers.

-Datawind, which makes Akash tablets secured the second position with a 20.7% market share. And for 2018, the increase in shipments will reach 4.5%. Two-third of Lenovo's shipments in Q1 2017 went to commercial segment. With increased participation in commercial deals, iBall is expected to gain momentum in commercial segment while most of the other key India vendors continue to be consumer oriented. Although shipments grew by 16.7 percent from the previous quarter, shipments are down 38.9 percent year-on-year.

"Limited shipments of iPad mini, which accounted for over one-third of total shipments last quarter, would result in shrinking of iOS market in India", the report states.

Unfortunately, Windows Phone won't benefit from this positive growth as IDC expects 2017 shipments to decrease to just 1.1 million units (down 80.9% year-over-year).
