Sales of second-hand mobile phones reached 206.7 million in 2019

By  Hyacinthia Zaitlin 2020-01-22 2210 2

IDC recently released figures on global sales of used smartphones in 2019. Statistics show that 200 million second-hand phones were sold last year, an increase of 17.6 percent over 2018.

IDC's data is interesting, with a total of 206.7 million used smartphones, including refurbished phones from mobile phone manufacturers and used phones sold by consumers. The largest share of second-hand mobile phone sales comes from consumers' old phones, who resell their old phones after replacing them with new ones. Part of the market share of second-hand phones comes from manufacturers' refurbished machines, which are problematic phones that affect the use of mobile phones in the production or sales process, or new phones with slight scratches that buyers do not recognize. Manufacturers' after-sales outlets will screen these problem phones and return them to the factory for processing and resale. In addition, the company predicts that shipments of used mobile phones will reach 332.9 million in 2023.

In addition, why can the market of second-hand mobile phones be so hot? I think on the one hand, it is because the frequency of new mobile phones launched by mobile phone manufacturers has accelerated, which has promoted the development of the mobile phone market. On the other hand, consumers' demand for new mobile phones is on the rise, and they are more willing to spend money to choose phones with more comprehensive functions and more up-to-date designs. The combination of the above two reasons has led to a surge in mobile phone sales in the second-hand market.
