Apple’s average selling price is expected to rise in the nearest future
According to Juniper Research, sales of iPhones will bring in over $200 billion in 2022. That’s almost 40% of the total smartphone hardware market, despite representing less than 20% of devices sold that year.
The research notes that although smartphone purchase cycles are lengthening, Apple has managed to consistently convince users to purchase higher-priced models through curation of a strong hardware and software ecosystem.
Consequently, Apple’s average selling price is expected to rise in the coming years. Meanwhile, Android devices will decline, unless they can leverage new technologies like 5G or bring new design features, such as foldable phones, into the market.
The research also notes that the decline in Huawei’s fortunes, thanks to the US trade ban, will not restore older brands to prominence, but allow other Chinese brands to expand.
Juniper Research expects BBK, the manufacturer of Oppo, Vivo, Realme, iQOO and OnePlus smartphones, to have over 200 million smartphones shipped in 2022; making it the third-largest player that year. In the meantime, Huawei’s market share will decline to just over 9% in 2022, from 11% in 2019.
