Worldwide Business Use Smartphone Forecast, 2021-2025
Published: March 30, 2021 Content info: 16 Pages

This IDC study presents the five-year forecast for worldwide business use smartphone shipments by operating system and user type (consumer, individual liable, and corporate liable). It's part of IDC's continuing research on mobile devices. Findings in this document are based on the information gathered from primary and secondary sources during the past six months. "While the worldwide business use smartphone market was negatively impacted by the effects of COVID-19 in 2020 from both a supply chain and buyer demand perspective, market recovery is expected to stay on track headed into 2021," said Bryan Bassett, senior research analyst, IDC's Enterprise Mobility: Deployment Strategies program. "Looking ahead, businesses are signaling that they will prioritize mobile security and management software solutions over new hardware purchases in the near term to better secure and manage their growing hybrid workforces."
