According to data from the survey company IDC in the second quarter of 2013, according to the smartphone market data, Android, which is the No. 1 market share, has further expanded to 79.3%, while iOS increased from 16.6% in the same period last year to 13.2% , BlackBerry has decreased from 4.9% to 2.9%. Shipments of the entire smartphone sharply increased by 51.3% compared with the same period last year, iPhone shipments are increasing, but the number of shipments itself has increased, but Android is increasing too much, the share itself is shrinking It is a state.

Smartphone shipments in the second quarter of 2013236.4 million unitswas. Because it was 156.2 million units in the same period last yearGrowth rate is 51.3%, Which was 213.3 million in the first quarter of 2013, it is 9.3% increase.

Among them, Android which is the leader of the smartphone market is steadily growing market share. Samsung ElectronicsGalaxy S4In addition to being a strong driving force, LG, Huawei, Lenovo, and ZTE have also increased by more than 10% each, and these five companies alone account for 62.5% of the total smartphone market. However, other Android smartphone makers are making non-negligible presence by making interesting terminals in each area.

It is the iOS that keeps the second place. In IDCIPhone 5Since then, analysis has analyzed that growth is slowing because there are no new model announcements. Since the new model and iOS 7 will be out in the second half of this year, we anticipate that it will come across.

IDC is paying attention to Windows Phone, which has expanded its market share only beyond Android. Shipments of 4.9 million units in the second quarter of 2012, 8.7 million units in the 2013 period, 77.6% growth rate is over Android. This is thanks to Nokia becoming the driving force of expansion, for example by issuing new models. However, for manufacturers other than Nokia, Windows Phone handles the second and subsequent hands, most manufacturers prioritize Android, so looking at the internal share of Windows Phone is the state where Nokia accounts for 81.6% . Mr. Ryan Lease of IDC is analyzing whether Windows Phone will be appealing as a differentiated existence in the smartphone market from now on.

BlackBerry is in trouble. The share is decreasing in the same way as iOS, but in terms of the number of shipments, iOS terminals have decreased by 11.7% compared with 20% more than last year, and IDC personnel have never seen it before It is decreasing to the standard level. However, BlackBerry 10 and three new model releases, an increase in handling mobile phone companies are good materials. Although it is a historical platform, the stage is still "early", so it is pointed out that time and resources are necessary for evangelizing to many users.

It is Linux that is in fifth place. Android is also a customized Linux kernel in a broad sense, but it is divided and it is divided and since the maker who was handling originally is also promoting transfer to Android, the share is 1% or less. In the future, it is unknown how far it will expand by the appearance of Firefox OS, Tizen, SailFish, etc.

You can see from the graph that the Windows Phone is coming out from the lower dango state.

By 2017, smartphone shipments will reach 1.5 billion units, of which over 70% (over 1 billion units) will be predicted by Android if it becomes Android.

In this data, Apple's iOS is sluggish, and Microsoft's Windows Phone is comparable to iOS, as Android continues to secure market share while continuing to secure market share while the expansion of the smartphone market comes from the low-end direction It is seen to increase market share to about. IDC, at the end of 2012The share of Windows Phone forecasts to increase to more than 10% in 2016And it seems that stable growth is expected.

Forecasts combined with other OS are here. Can the BlackBerry survive without reducing the market share?
