Apple Keeps 92% of Profits In The Mobile Industry, According to Canaccord


If we impacts us, imagine the face that should have mobile phone manufacturers to analyze data. The business is almost as Apple and Samsung delivers something that despite being the largest vendor, makes much less money. Merchandise hand reaching customers.

More than a thousand companies making mobile phones, and 92% of the benefits that are recorded are for Cupertino. Koreans would be 15%. We talked about the data used, and estimate on the first quarter that we are living (actually only take into account the eight major manufacturers).

Apple sells products worth three times the average Android, it seems that things will change in the medium term

Some will ask how it is possible that the sum of percentages rise of 100% – I also asked the question – the answer we get is that other manufacturers lose money. The most striking data Canaccord case is Lenovo, which appears negative 1% – bought a Motorola deficit – we can also name HTC.

Yes, it is complicated to understand, but that’s what people tell us of Canaccord Genuity and WSJ, and were compared with the same period last year, when the percentage was 65%. Too high a figure, but more in line with what many had in mind.

Cupertino can sell high, with an average of $ 660 per phone – last year was $ 625 – which is more than three times that you have an Android, $ 185 phone.

There are many private companies that do not have fresh data, such as Xiaomi or Micromax. These are companies that sell many phones, but is not expected of them a great performance as they are relatively young and work with products that have a small margin.

Looking ahead over the medium term, there is no reason to think that things will change too, especially if we pay attention to the news that talk about that Apple is preparing a production of around 90 million iPhone 6s .
