UBS confirms what most already know, Apple and Samsung are on top of the smartphone heap when it comes to profits. It is estimated that the two electronics giants will pull in a combined 90% of the smartphone industry's pre-tax profits in 2012.
Analyst Maynard Um stated that
“Smartphones continue to grow strongly, now accounting for over 30% of total volumes and over 75% of total industry revenues,” the analyst wrote. “However, the performance disparity between the stronger players – Apple and Samsung – vs. the others remains stark and these two now account for over 55% of industry revenues and over 90% of total EBIT.”
With the anticipation of next generation devices coming from both companies this year, smartphone and tablet sales are expected to grow significantly in 2012.
