Smartphones to get cheaper, sales to rise in 2014: IDC

12:07 AM

IDC said it expects the average selling price of smartphones to drop this year to $314 from $335 in 2013, and to keep declining to $267 by 2018.

The research firm said it expects Android to remain ahead of the pack with an 80.4 percent market share in 2014, and to lose a modest amount of ground to Windows over the coming years. 

Apple's iOS market share is forecast to drop from 14.8% in 2014 to 13.7% in 2018, suggesting growth in some markets, despite Apple's lack of low-cost units. 

An IDC survey said smartphone sales will maintain an annual growth rate of 12.3% through 2018. 

Much of the growth is coming from low-cost devices using the Android operating system, with Apple's market share eroding, Microsoft Windows making modest gains and BlackBerry fading further, IDC said.
