Published: Tue Dec 22 2015

Despite the macroeconomic crisis in Brazil, mobile phone continued to register quite positive results in comparison to other consumer electronics categories in 2015. However, the pace of the category’s development was tempered somewhat by the increasingly high penetration of smartphones, which saw retail volume growth slow after having experienced very strong growth rates earlier in the review period. Moreover, even smartphones was not immune to the negative effects of the economic downturn. While consumers continued to buy new and more technologically advanced smartphones in 2015, they tended to plan such purchases more carefully, as credit restrictions made paying in instalments a less accessible and/or more expensive option.
