Market research firm IDC released research report on Thursday, it’s predicted that China will overtake the United States this year to become the world’s largest smartphone market. IDC expects demand for cheap smartphones based on Google Android operating system will increase.

IDC expects the Chinese smartphone market share will rise from 18.3% last year to 26.5% this year in the global market, while the U.S. market share will decline from 21.3% to 17.8%.

IDC said the fierce competition between smartphone vendors prompted the increase of the number of Android phones with a low price of $100 or less, which will help smartphone sales in the Chinese market. IDC expects, mobile operators in the Chinese market will increase sales by providing subsidies. At the same time, the growth rate of the U.S. smartphone market this year is expected to be slowed down, because most mobile phones sold in the U.S. market are smart phones.

IDC expects the UK smartphone market share will be 4.5%, ranked third; Indian share is expected to be 2.5%, ranked fourth, and it will rise to 8.5% in 2016; Brazilian share is expected to be 2.3%, ranked fifth.

Samsung is the largest Android smartphone manufacturers in the global market, so is in the Chinese market, what ranked after it are Huawei, ZTE and Lenovo Group, China’s domestic manufacturers.
