Why Smartphone Shipments will Double by 2016

According to the latest market study by NPD DisplaySearch, smartphone shipments are forecast to reach 567 million in 2012, and nearly double by 2016 as new phones continue to enter this established market.

“Apple’s iPhone 5 will be a key product for the smartphone market in the second half of 2012. Apple shipped more than 140 million phones in 2010 and 2011, so we can expect smartphone shipments to continue flourishing as users upgrade to the new iPhone,” said Hiroshi Hayase, vice president at NPD DisplaySearch.
