Smartphones in Australia dominate the mobile device market, accounting for the vast majority of sales.
However, the market is subject to seasonal changes, and given that most users are on contracts sales of new devices are also determined by the timing of contract renewals. There has also been a change in the popularity of certain handsets, with a marked shift towards Android based-phones at the expense of Apple, though the latter brand commands a core of devotees which guarantee sales as well as interest in new devices such as the iWatch. The Android platform is buttressed by the large number of manufacturers and styles available, which provides for a wide range of pricing points. Smartphones, and to a lesser extent tablets, have become central as a means of accessing the internet, particularly among the younger demographic. In addition, these devices are beginning to dominate overall e-commerce, accounting for about a third of e-commerce transactions. This proportion will increase further into 2018 in line with the wider availability of devices with larger screens, more mobile-friendly websites and easier payment systems. These devices account for a growing proportion of mobile data accessed and of business and commerce related transactions.
