iPhone5 Could Enable Apple to Grow its Mobile Market Share by 2X
By: Prashanth Shantharam  |  3, August 2011

Piper Jaffray, from its survey on prospective mobile buyers, predicts that Apple could almost double its market share with iPhone5. Based on their survey, nearly 2 out of 3 consumers said they have iPhone5 on the radar as their next mobile phone purchase. Android and Blackberry came in a distant second and third respectively.

Duration of launch between iPhone4 and 5 is in part the reason attributed to a high chunk of users desiring to buy the iPhone5. The new update would take 14-15 months since the launch of iPhone4, while previous updates took under 12 months.

Going by the buzz iPhone5 is generating, and with consumer anticipation being high, it wouldn’t be surprising if iPhone5 potentially enables Apple to more than double its share.

    "Mobile is fundamentally reshaping how we as consumers spend from housing and healthcare to entertainment and travel, from food and drinks to communication and transportation. Mobile not only influences purchase behavior but also post purchase opinions. When the share button is literally a second away, consumers are willingly sharing more information than ever before. Mobile is thus helping close the nirvana gap for brands and advertisers who seek to connect advertising to actual transactions. The long-term battle is however for owning the context of the users. Having the best knowledge about the user to help drive the transaction is the simply the most valuable currency of commerce.” -- Chetan Sharma State of Global Mobile Industry Report1H, 2011
