Kantar: Android and iOS squeeze out Windows Phone

Yordan, 15 March 2017

Kantar Worldpanel published its report on the smartphone market for the three months ending in January 2017, and the numbers are clear - Android and iOS are the only players left on the field, while Windows Phone and BlackBerry OS are quickly disappearing.

In top 5 EU markets Android had a 74.3% share to 22.7% for iOS. Android keeps growing in Urban China where it hit 83.2%, raising with 9.3% over the same period last year, while Apple 16.6%.

The only place where iOS grows and Android loses points is the US market. Google’s OS accounts for 56.4% of sales in Q4 2016 while iOS devices have a 42% share of the pie.

MWC 2017 was an example that the world is turning into a two-OS battle instead of having a diversity - BlackBerry introduced the Keyone with Android and already ditched BlackBerry OS and Nokia, once flying the Windows Phone flag is now in camp Android.
