Mobile Phones in Taiwan - New Market Research Report

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Fri Jan 23 2015

In 2014, switch from feature phones to low-end smartphones became more pronounced with free smartphones offered by telecommunications operators when consumers sign up for mobile phone contract plans. This was driven by smartphone manufacturers which increasingly found high-end smartphones in Taiwan saturated, and moved to offer more low-end products.

Competitive Landscape

Nokia Group dominated feature phones with 55% volume share in 2013, while Samsung Electronics Taiwan Co Ltd was the top player within smartphones in Taiwan with 24% volume share. Nokia has traditionally been strong in Taiwan for its feature phones and while many other mobile phone players switched focus towards the end of the review period to smartphones, Nokia did not succeed in doing so. Hence, even though it retained its dominance within feature phones, in terms of total volume sales, the company did not perform well in Taiwan, declining by 43% in retail volume terms in 2013.

Industry Prospects

Mobile phones in Taiwan will continue to record growth over the forecast period. The strong growth experienced by smartphones over the review period is expected to slow down, as a greater percentage of the total population already own such phones. Increasing unlimited mobile internet, cheaper smartphones and increasing use of smartphones for social media, messaging and free VoIP calls will stimulate smartphone uptake and upgrades amongst consumers. Feature phone demand is projected to further decline rapidly over the forecast period.
