The expected success of the iPhone X can increase sales of devices, including smartphones, tablets and PCs, to the maximum in 2015, according to a Gartner report.
Analysts Gartner suggest that in 2018, the expected total device shipments will exceed 2.35 billion, which is 2% higher than in 2017. The Agency notes that the iPhone X will probably become the leader of sales in the United States, China and Western Europe, despite the price more than $ 1,000.
As for smartphones, Gartner predicts that total sales will exceed 1.9 billion devices, which is 6% higher than in 2017.
The growing share of mobile devices will help to compensate for the continuing decline of such in the market of personal computers. In the report, analysts it is important to note that, despite the decline of the PC market, the demand exists on the part of most users.
“However, our latest online survey of end users revealed that users still need PCs and tablets, like smartphones,” — said Ranjit Atwal, research Director at Gartner.
“40 percent of respondents reported that they mostly use a PC/tablet for certain daily tasks such as reading, emailing, watching videos. At the same time, 34% of respondents use a smartphone for convenience on the way.”
One of the problems as PCs and tablets is that the users update them less frequently, than smartphones, and that causes a fall in the share market.
