A few years ago, it looked like the smartphone industry was on its way out. But this time around, the market has a chance to be as big as the PC industry.
The smartphone industry is in a bit of a turmoil as shipments have been declining world over. Apple hasn’t suffered too much as the revenue from iPhone grew 10% year-over-year and stood at $42.6 billion.
Apple shipped 43 million iPhones in the first quarter, which is nearly double of what it shipped in the same quarter last year. As for the rest of the industry, Samsung struggled to ship 53 million smartphones in the first quarter, down from 61 million in the same period last year.Samsung is expected to sell around 50 million Galaxy S and Note devices this year, so if Apple can keep its momentum going, it should be able to surpass Samsung and close in on Xiaomi’s shipments.

It’s a little bit tough to tell what the future of the smartphone industry holds. There are big players like Apple and Samsung that are doing well and some companies like Xiaomi, which is producing phones with decent specs at a low price, and Oppo that offers high-end hardware at a lower price. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out.
