It is expected that in 2025 the supply of such smartphones will reach 100 million units.
According to estimates by Strategy Analytics, less than 1 million foldable smartphones with flexible screens were shipped last year. However, the release of these devices will grow rapidly in the coming years, so that in 2025 100 million units will be shipped.
According to analysts, so far the market for folding smartphones is hampered by high prices and the “dubious durability” of devices of a new form factor, but in the long run these problems will be solved.
The experts in the segment are Strategy Analytics, Samsung and Huawei. Analysts are sure that over time others will follow the example of these companies, and by 2025 every major manufacturer, including Apple, will offer such models.
