The market share of the iPhone will increase in 2018 according to TrendForce

Yesterday we talked about the Mac's market share having increased in 2017 and would continue to do so in 2018 according to TrendForce. And today we have seen a new statistic where we see the market share of the iPhone in 2017 and the forecast for next year, and two companies will see their presence in the market increased in 2018, and one of them is Manzana. 

The presence of iPhone in the market continues to increase

The growth of smartphone sales is expected to decrease to 2.8% this year. Although they will sell more smartphone than the previous year in theory, the growth will not be as fast as in 2017 . But according to TrendForce, the two mobile brands that will grow in a clear way in 2018 will be Apple and Nokia as you can see in the following table.

TrendForce has commented the following on the growth of Apple:
Apple is still in second place in the ranking of smartphone production in 2017. For this year, Apple is preparing to launch three new flagship models in the third quarter, and will expand the adoption of Face ID technology with an infinite screen on these new iPhone, along with the improvement of its existing functions and increase the content of memory too. According to TrendForce, the iPhone's annual production volume is expected to increase by 6% due to the improved specifications of the new iPhones and the expansion of Apple in the Indian market.
With this supposed higher production, thanks to the launch of three new iPhone models this year the market share of the iPhone will increase from 15.2% in 2017 to 15.7% in 2018. The company's highest rival Cupertino will not be so lucky, since according to TrendForce its market share will be reduced to 20.3% when in 2017 it had 21.9%.
