U.S. Business Use Smartphone Forecast Update, 2022–2026
This IDC study presents the five-year forecast for the U.S. business use of smartphone shipments by operating system and user type (consumer, individual liable, and corporate liable). It is part of IDC's continuing research with respect to mobile devices. Findings in this document are based on information gathered from primary and secondary sources during the past six months.
"Due in an increasing dependency on mobile devices in the enterprise, corporate-liable device shipments are expected to weather periods of economic uncertainty better than BYOD device shipments," said Bryan Bassett, research manager, IDC's Enterprise Mobility: Workspace and Deployment Strategies program. "While individual-liable devices are tied to consumer market fluctuations, corporate-liable mobile devices are increasingly responsible for handling business-critical workflows that enterprises must prioritize and dedicate IT spending to maintain."
