Smartphone shipments will fall by 3.5% to 1.31 billion units in 2022, according to IDC.
Analysts said Apple would be the least affected by supply cuts because it controls the entire iPhone production cycle. In addition, iPhones are traditionally in the expensive segment of smartphones, so their buyers are less exposed to various economic problems.
Smartphone shipments will decline due to reduced demand, inflation, supplier issues and geopolitical tensions. Apple and Samsung have already reduced smartphone production orders this year.
IDC predicts that the situation will improve by the end of the year if there are no new problems in the world. In 2023, the smartphone market should fully recover and grow by 5%. [MacRumors]
The market will recover next year.
