Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by Billy Hulkower, a leading analyst in the Technology sector, his extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
From 2013-16, over 200 million phones sold in the US annually, and Mintel estimates that sales will stand at a record of 204 million units in 2017. Phone manufacturers have successfully and consistently driven upgrades via superior cameras, 4G (fourth-generation wireless network) chips, faster CPUs (central processing units), improved graphics, increased storage space, and larger screens. However, given that the majority of adults (75%, not shown) own a phone that is less than two years old, substantial advances in technology need to continue just to maintain sales.
