Executive Summary of IEMR's Global Handset Market Share and Forecast

Global Handset Shipments to rise to 1.43 billion in 2011, up 19.2% from 2009 levels

Global Mobile Handset Shipments to rise to 1.43 billion in 2011

- Globally, we are expecting the number of handset shipments to rise from 1.20 billion in 2009 to 1.43 billion in 2011.

- Although global handset shipment growth (YoY) was negative in 2009, 2010 has so far seen robust shipment growth announcements from vendors.

- Our model is forecasting annual growth rates of 8% - 10% over the forecast period, 2010 - 2011.

Nokia will maintain market share of above 35% over the next two years

Samsung's market share will be increasing over the forecast period

- Top handset suppliers in the global market are Nokia, Samsung, LG, Sony Ericsson, Motorola and Research In Motion.

- The largest vendor by shipments continues to be Nokia. We forecast that Nokia will have a market share of 36.3% in 2011, with handset shipments of 518.3 million in 2011.

- We expect that Samsung, the second largest handset vendor globally, will increase its market share from the current 19.9% to 20.5% in 2011, with handset shipments of 293 million by the end of next year.

Asia Pacific is the Largest Regional Handset Market

Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa will experience faster growth than other regional handset markets over the next two years

- We forecast that Samsung will have handset shipments of 50.9 million in North America in 2011 (market share of 28%).

- In our view Nokia, with its current 6% market share in the North American market has a long way to go before it can start displacing the market leaders there.
