Worldwide Business Use Smartphone Forecast, 2020-2024
Published: March 26, 2020 Content info: 17 Pages

This IDC study presents the five-year forecast for the worldwide business use of smartphone shipments by operating system and user type (consumer, individual liable, and corporate liable). It is part of IDC's continuing research with respect to mobile devices. Findings in this document are based on information gathered from primary and secondary sources during the past six months."While the business use smartphone market is expected to remain stable over the forecast period, it is impossible to deny that the global outbreak of COVID-19 will have a severe and adverse effect on global device markets through 2020," said Bryan Bassett, senior research analyst, IDC's Enterprise Mobility: Deployment Strategies program. "As a result, an intense demand for mobile and remote worker business solutions will follow in the wake of COVID-19's disruption, as governments, businesses, and individuals rely on mobile devices more than ever to help alleviate the impact that mandated social distancing will have on regular business operations worldwide."
