In 2012, the mobile phone shipment worldwide approximated 1.606 billion, a
meager rise of 1.9% compared to 2011. Against the backdrop of sluggish
emerging economies as well as the tenuous economic growth in Europe in 2013,
the global mobile phone market is not optimistic, with the expected shipment
slightly surging by 2.0% to 1.638 billion sets. Despite the fact that the
growth dynamic of smartphone cannot compete with that in 2012, the smartphone
shipment in 2013 is expected to exceed that of normal phones for the first
time. Looking into 2014, emerging markets are still sluggish and, are greatly
likely to see further downward mobility. By contrast, developed economies such
as Japan and America are projected to witness stable growth momentum. And it
is the same case for Europe whose mobile phone shipment is estimated to hit
1.688 billion sets by 2014.
In 2012, the smartphone shipment worldwide approximated 787 million sets, up
51.3% over 2011. The estimate shows that the figure in 2013 will be 950
million sets, up 20.7% over 2012. In 2013, smartphone is expected to make up
58% of the overall mobile phone market.
In 2012, the mobile phone output on Chinese mainland claimed around 1.210
billion, up 9.2% over 2011. Worldwide, 75% mobile phones are made in the
mainland China, in 2011, the figure recorded 70%. It is projected that China's
mobile phone output in 2013 will reach 1.28 billion sets, up 5.8% over 2012.
In 2012, the mobile phone export volume on Chinese mainland amounted to 1.015
billion sets, of which, at least 10% were resold to mainland China. In China,
mobile phone export destinations concentrate in Hong Kong, South Korea,
America, EU, ASEAN, India and Mexico. In 2012, the export to Japan came out
top in terms of growth, rising by 63%, followed by South Korea (by 39%), Hong
Kong (by 30%), and America (by 25%). In particular, China's mobile phone
export to the EU grew by 3.6%, while the export to India dived by 18%.
