Samsung, Apple grow in the US, others decline

Apple and Samsung combined rule around 68% of the market and are only two in the Top 5 that increased their market share.

Once again we have a detailed closer look at the smartphone market in the US thanks to the recently published report from experts of comScore for the March-June quarter. The smartphone penetration in the US market has increased tremendously and it has grown to 71.6% with a total of 173 million US residents now owning a smartphone. We can already guess who is currently ruling over the US smartphone market; thumbs up for all those who thought Samsung and Apple because that is indeed the truth.

Both these companies won 68% of this market and these are the only two smartphone manufacturers which have increased their market share. Apple has taken the lead and is the biggest smartphone manufacturer in the US with 42.1% share and Samsung comes next with its 28.6%. Rest of the companies fill the other space of the top 5 including LG, Motorola and HTC with 5 to 6 percent of the share.

 

You might find this surprising that Apple dominates the US market as far as the share is concerned but the OS system has been taken over by Android which powers over half of all US smartphones and Apple’s iOS comes in the second place with a share of 42.1% in powering smartphones.
