Industry Background

The US Smartphone market comprises of all the top firms of the world that are into the manufacturing and selling of smartphones. Smartphone is a mobile electronic device with an advanced OS which allows installing of new applications and is always connected to the internet. Overall it provides a very diverse functionality to the user.

 Market Overview 

As many market participants of the US smartphone market are international and multinational players, hence it is very difficult to estimate the market share of the participants in the US smartphone market and so sales figures are not broken down to US sales only (Rose, 1990).

Hence it makes more sense to look at the proxy that is available which gives us a better idea regarding the manufacturing market share of the smart phones in USA. The Smartphone OS sales provide a clear basic understanding of the smartphone manufacturing market since the manufacturers have to follow a propriety OS model i.e. their OS is available only for their model.However this again has a catch, since incase of open OS systems like Android, this doesn’t provide accurate information for all the manufacturers individually.
