Coronavirus: Smartphone sales down due to pandemic



Research firm Strategy Analytics said shipments in February fell 38% year-on-year. The spread of coronavirus in China had a major impact, the author said, reports BBC.

The report said shipments of smartphones fell from 99.2 million in February 2019 to 61.8 million in February 2020.



February was set to be a big month for the phone industry, with its big annual showcase of the Mobile World Congress, where many new phones are unveiled for the first time.

The event was one of the first major conventions to be canceled due to coronavirus. Samsung, which unveiled its latest S20 phones in February, is reported to have seen slow initial sales of the devices.

Apple, meanwhile, warned it would lose profit forecasts and said worldwide supply of the iPhone would be “limited”.

The research firm said it expected smartphone shipments to continue to fight throughout March, now that the virus has spread to Europe and the United States.

Hundreds of millions of potential customers are now closing. Retailers may decide to offer “generous” discounts on packages to boost sales, said Strategy Analytics.
