The smartphone market is facing saturation in developed countries. Thus, the growth in the smartphone market will be driven by emerging countries, such as India, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Vietnam. These countries are experiencing an economic boom, which is leading to a rise in the per capita income. Consumers' income levels are increasing, and smartphones are becoming more affordable because of the entry and penetration of low-cost Chinese alternatives, such as OPPO, Vivo, and Xiaomi.
