Worldwide Device Shipments to Grow Just 1.9% in 2016, User Spending to Decline

Gartner is reporting that worldwide device shipments are expected to grow 1.9% in 2016, but end-user spending is expected to decline for the first time. Combined shipments of PCs, tablets, ultramobiles and mobile phones are predicted to reach 2.4 billion units in 2016 and end-user spending in constant U.S. dollars will reportedly decline 0.5 percent.“It’s clear that vendors can no longer market their products with the mind of only targeting the mature and emerging markets,” said Ranjit Atwal, research director at Gartner. “Driven by economic variations the market is splitting into four categories: economically challenged mature markets, economically stable mature markets and the same for emerging markets. Russia and Brazil will fall into the category of economically challenged emerging markets while India will be stable, and Japan will belong to the economically challenged mature market.” Share Article:Facebook,   Twitter,   LinkedIn,   Google Plus,   Email,   Reddit,   Digg,   Delicious,   StumbleUponFollow iClarified:Facebook,   Twitter,   LinkedIn,   Google Plus,   Newsletter,   App Store,   YouTubeAdvertise Here
