Published: September 25, 2018 Content info: 19 Pages

This IDC study presents the five-year forecast for the worldwide business use 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."In 2018, the worldwide business use smartphone market remains steady, as enterprises look to enable new groups of users that until recently have been under-mobilized," says Bryan Bassett, senior research analyst, IDC's Enterprise Mobility: Deployment Strategies program. "Mobility is having an immense impact in retail, healthcare, warehousing, and transportation industries, where new mobile solutions are going beyond the general demands of individual productivity."
