Oppo will become the third smartphone brand in 2021
Digitimes Research said recently that after three consecutive years of decline from 2018 to 2020, global smartphone shipments in 2021 are expected to grow at a double-digit rate or 150 million units. This growth is due to the construction of 5G infrastructure and the process of commercial operations in Japan, Western Europe and the United States.
In the next five years, with the increase in the number of commercial 5G networks and the expansion of coverage, the replacement demand for 5G smartphones will increase. Digitimes Research predicts that the supply of entry-level 5G or 4G equipment in emerging markets will also drive global smartphone shipments. They will reach 1.5 billion and 1.7 billion in 2023 and 2025, respectively.
Samsung Electronics and Apple will take the top two positions in smartphone shipments in 2021. They will be followed by OPPO, VIVO and Xiaomi. The Shenzhen-based Transsion will sell entry-level smartphones of multiple brands in Africa and South Asia. So it will rank sixth. Huawei, due to the US ban, will fall back to seventh place.
Digitimes Research also predicts that global 5G smartphone shipments will reach 200 million units in 2020. Then, it will expand to 1.22 billion units in 2025.
