The Annual Mobile Shipment Is Expected To Grow Over the Next 2 Years Due To 5G Devices: Report

Smart gadgets have become an important part of our lives and this is the reason that the shipment of devices like PCs, tablets and mobile phones is expected to reach 2.16 billion units this year. It will be a 0.9% increase in the shipment of devices from 2019, which is mainly due to 5G handsets, says Gartner report.

In 2020, 12 percent of the mobile shipments will be of 5G models and by 2022, it will increase to 43 percent.

Ranjit Atwal, Senior Director Analyst at Gartner, said there will be a minor market recovery in 2020. Mobile phone replacement will grow with the availability of 5G handsets and the global device shipments will grow this year.

Last year, the total global shipment of devices was 2.15 billion units, whereas, in 2020, the mobile phone market is expected to grow by 1.7 percent.

There was a 2 percent decline in the shipment of mobile phones in 2019 from the previous year but the shipment is expected to grow in 2020, especially in China and the emerging markets in Asia/ Pacific.

This year, prices of 5G might lower and more people will adopt it. The 5G services coverage will also increase and users will enjoy an improved experience with 5G devices.

In about three years, the market will grow even more and in 2023, 50 percent of the shipment of the mobile device will account for 5G handsets.

Though in 2019 there was a growth in PC shipments but this year again it is expected to decline. According to the report, in 2020 the market will be affected due to the migration to Windows 10

There will be a growth in the professional PC market over the next three years after which the replacement level will decrease.

Almost one billion PCs will migrate to Windows 10 in 2020, which is 80 percent of all the total Pcs in use.

According to Atwal, it is difficult to predict the future of the PC market as there is no chance of Windows 11, in fact only a few systematic regular updates for Windows 10 will be seen.
