This IDC study presents the updated five-year forecast for smartphone shipments worldwide by operating system. The worldwide smartphone market will reach 1.35 billion units shipped in 2021, up 5.3% from the 1.28 billion units shipped in 2020. From there, shipments will reach 1.52 billion units in 2025, the final year of our forecast period, resulting in a CAGR of 3.5%."As with our previous forecast, 2021 will still represent peak average selling prices (ASPs) as Android will end the year at $265 while iOS climbs to a staggering $950," said Anthony Scarsella, research director, IDC's Worldwide Mobile Device Trackers. "The continued demand for premium models in developed markets has 2021 ASPs growing 11.4% to $382, up from $343 one year ago. In addition, the record-breaking $950 ASP for iOS in 2021 has Apple controlling nearly 43% of all smartphone revenue despite only having a 17.1% market share. However, moving forward, prices in the overall market will start to slowly fall as 5G devices will decline by 14.5% in 2022, while 4G devices drop by over 18% next year as the market continues to shift towards 5G."
