It’s a Smartphone World

It’s a Smartphone World

The number of smartphone users worldwide will surpass 2 billion in 2016 — after nearly getting there in 2015. Next year, there will be more than 1.91 billion smartphone users across the globe, a figure that will increase another 12.6% to near 2.16 billion in 2016.

By 2018, more than one-third of consumers worldwide, or more than 2.56 billion people, will do so. That 2018 figure also represents 51.7% of all mobile phone users, meaning that feature phones will have finally become a minority in the telecommunications world.

In the U.S., smartphone users will surpass 200 million by 2017, or nearly 65% of the country’s total population.
