Increased Sales and Shelf Share Set Stage for Dramatic Acceleration of Large Screen Smartphone Market  January 29, 2018 – 09:55 am

According to The NPD Group Connected Intelligence Device Marketplace Report, U.S. nationwide carriers devoted about a third of their shelf space to devices with a 4.7 inch or larger screen in the second quarter (Q2) of this year, up from just 4 percent in Q2 2012. Sales growth has lagged, however, behind product availability. U. S. sales of smartphones with 4.7 inch or larger screens now account for more than a quarter of sales, up from 2 percent in Q2 2012 according to NPD Mobile Phone Track.

“Larger screens mean a much richer content experience for smartphone users, ” said Brad Akyuz, director, NPD Connected Intelligence. “The increase in video consumption driven by large-display smartphones is a tremendous revenue opportunity for network operators, as consumers will need more data to enjoy content on-the-go”.

“While interest among U.S. consumers in larger screen smartphones is growing, sales growth has been relatively disappointing over the past two years due to Apple’s dominance of the market, ” said Stephen Baker, vice president, industry analysis, NPD. “All the demand, channel and usage pieces are in place for larger smartphone sales and share to increase. If Apple releases a bigger iPhone it will be the final catalyst for explosive growth in the 4.7”+ market.”

Larger smartphones have been more of a supplier push than a consumer pull, and suppliers plan to continue the increase supply. According to NPD DisplaySearch, North American shipments of 4.7-inch and larger smartphones are forecast to reach 120 millionin 2014 and grow to 179 million by 2018.
