It seems that the interest of the market to the smartphone Apple is gradually falling. This is indicated by the figures obtained by the agency specialists IHS iSuppli study after sales.
In 2011, Apple sold 93 million iPhone . A year later, another 134 million. Growth in this period was 44%. In this, the percentage may be significantly lower. Even lower than the market average.
IHS iSuppli experts expect Apple implementation of 150 million smartphones by the end of this year. In percentage terms, this means that sales growth will be only 12% while the market average figure is 26 percent.
One measure of the success of iPhone sales this year will be the financial report for the June quarter. According to analysts of Wall Street Apple otraportuet to sell 26.5 million iPhone, but the notorious Katy Huberty of Morgan Stanley , believes that from this report is to expect more. According to the analyst, the iPhone sales for the fiscal third quarter will fit within the 29 to 32 million units.
If the forecast Huberty coincide with the real numbers, then we can say with certainty that the forecast of analysts IHS iSuppli is not justified. The fact is that the results ending June quarter iPhone sales will reach maximum heights. That’s because the market is in anticipation of a new model of iPhone. September quarter can be characterized as predreliznogo and therefore higher sales of the iPhone in the last three months can hardly be expected.
Let me remind you that Apple will announce the results of its operations for the third fiscal quarter of next Wednesday – July 23. We will closely monitor the broadcast and let you know the results immediately after its completion.
