iPhone with 39% Market-Share Grows by 33% annually, according to March, 2013 Data from comScore. Samsung with 21.7% share is growing less than half iPhone’s rate ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

May 5, 2013


Android Phone and Apple iPhone Now Combine for 91% of U.S. Smartphone Users as Reported by comScore’s March 2013 U.S. Smartphone Subscriber Market Share.

The latest data from comScore indicates the iPhone’s share of the U.S. smartphone is growing and is now inching ever so close to 40%. For the period covering the first three months of 2013, comScore’s data shows that the iPhone’s share of the U.S. smartphone market checked in at 39%, representing a 2.7% gain from the period ending December 2012 when the iPhone accounted for 36.3% of the U.S. smartphone market.

Lets do the Math. A market share growth of 2.7% (36.3+2.7%=39.0%) sounds minimalistic; however, this 2.7% growth in market share represents an increase of 7.44%, (2.7/36.3) from the prior quarter figure of 36.3% for the Quarter. If this 7.44% quarterly increase continued for the next quarter, then the iPhone would command a 41.9% market share by June, 2013, and 45.0% by September, 2013, and

iPhone’s Market-Share would be 48.4% by Dec, 2013. A market share increase of 2.7%/Quarter represents a Growth of 33.2% annually. Therefore the Headline should read:

iPhone with 39% Market-Share Grows by 33% annually, according to March, 2013 Data from comScore. Samsung with 21.7% share is growing less than half the iPhone’s rate.

Of course, when the metrics turn to overall platform share, Apple takes a backseat to Android which accounted for 52% of the U.S. smartphone market during Q1 2013. Overall though, Apple’s platform share went up by +2.7% points (or 7.44%/Quarter = +30% Annually) while Google’s Android lost -1.4% (or a loss of -2.62%/Quarter = -10% Loss Annually).
