The global shipment volume of smartphones grew by 2.9% YoY to 1.482 billion units in 2016. This growth rate is lower than that of 11.1% in 2015, suggesting the industry has entered the plateau. Among the different regions in the global market, the markets in Europe, North America, and China have all saturated.
