Nokia Captured 9% Global feature phone marketshare in 2016

Nokia logoGlobal feature phone shipments reached 396 million units in 2016. Samsung was the world's number one feature phone vendor with 13 percent marketshare last year, followed by Nokia in second place with 9 percent share.

According to Strategy Analytics, global feature phone shipments accounted for 21 percent of all 1.88 billion mobile phones shipped last year. Feature phones today still account for 1 in 5 of all mobile phones bought worldwide and the category is surprisingly larger than many think.

Samsung shipped a sizeable 52.3 million feature phones worldwide and captured 13 percent marketshare in 2016. Nokia, run today by HMD Global, shipped 35.3 million feature phones for 9 percent marketshare worldwide in 2016. Nokia has struggled in smartphones, but it maintains a very good reputation for delivering user-friendly feature phones at competitive prices, such as the Nokia 230 Dual SIM. TCL-Alcatel held third place with 7 percent feature phone marketshare globally in 2016. TCL-Alcatel has been losing ground in smartphones, but its feature phones remain in demand among price-sensitive consumers in Latin America and elsewhere.
