According to the market researcher IDC, Apple lost the market share in Western Europe while Android surges. Apple is not gaining good response from the Western Europe especially for iPhone as iPhone market share drops in Europe. Apple is gradually losing the market share, as its market share dropped to 20% from 25% in the first quarter of 2012 ( 1Q12), said the IDC on Tuesday.
Android takes the advantage and remains at the top as it launches awesome technology which public really like and appreciate. ‘’Android continues to control the Smartphones’’ according to the IDC.
In quarter, Google ‘s OS dispatched 21.9 million components & the market share grows up to 69 percent in 1Q13 ( 1ST quarter of 2013) from 55 percent in the last year’s 1st quarter.
Overall, western European parsimonies contracted, according to the IDC. ‘’ A slowdown in the Smartphone sales experienced many western European countries as economies deteriorated, with a resulting decline in disposable revenue for consumers.’’
IDC released a report on Smartphone market share last week in India, where Apple fights to remain relevant.
Apple got whacked out of the best 5 Smartphone vendors in the India in the unit shipments, according to the report, quoting 1st quarter numbers from the IDC. Android controlled the Indian market of Smartphone with 90% share, determined by the sales in the little end part, as the report says.
Overall, Apple is not showing any good performance that it can grow up the market shares which is the one of reason that iPhone market share drops in the Europe and in India. But Android does so well that it is gaining public response greatly so that’s why its market share increasing gradually in many parts of the world especially in the Western Europe and in the India.
