Market Challenges

  • Smartphone vendors are investing substantial resources in exporting devices to seize the global market. However, government interventions, such as trade bans, can adversely impact this market. For instance, the US and China, significant players in the global electronics supply chain, have imposed tariffs on each other, including smartphones. This has increased the cost of manufacturing and selling smartphones, potentially reducing sales volumes and market share for vendors. APAC, the primary market for smartphones, has been affected due to increasing government regulations on the movement of electronic commodities. As a result, the shipment of smartphones from China to other countries decreased in Q2 2021. The uncertainty surrounding trade wars and government regulations is expected to hinder the growth of the global smartphone market during the forecast period.
  • The smartphone market faces several challenges in 2021, according to International Data Corporation. Component shortages, particularly semiconductors, hinder mobile phone manufacturers’ ability to meet demand. Virtual and augmented reality technologies require low-power consumption and fast charging capability, adding complexity. Human-system interaction, digital information, and connectivity are key for mobile phone usage in automobiles, fleet management, healthcare devices, and infrastructure security systems. Mobile sensors, face recognition, and fingerprint technology are essential hardware features. OEMs and e-commerce platforms prioritize online shopping, m-commerce, and telecom industry collaborations. Dual-camera systems, web browsing, multimedia, and gaming are primary software capabilities. Governmental assistance and feature phones cater to specific markets. The technology market continues to evolve, with hardware and software capabilities shaping the future of consumer electronics.
