Samsung will lead over Apple in smartphone sales in 2013

Samsung will likely increase its lead over Apple in smartphone sales in 2013. According to Reuters, who said the Korean company will achieve 35% year-on year growth in smartphones, 2 percent more than Apple's smartphone sales.


"We expect Samsung to slightly extend its lead over Apple this year because of its larger multitier product portfolio," Neil Mawston, executive director at Strategy Analytics, said in an e-mail interview with Reuters.


The analyst is projecting global smartphone market growth will slow in 2013 from its very rapid rate of expansion last year, with shipments projected to rise 27% to 875 million this year, projected to be slowing from last year's 41% growth. Strategy Analytics said this is due to growth easing in many "key" markets such as North America, China, the developed economies of Asia, and Western Europe.


This will give Samsung a 33 percent share of the 2013 smartphone market, up from last year's estimated 31 percent, while Apple will hold 21 percent, versus last year's 20 percent.
