Apple’s US Market Share Grows from 28% to 40% in a Year - CIRP



According to the latest report from a research firm Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP), Apple’s market share in the United States grew from 28% in March 2015 to 40% in March 2016. What this means is that customers still prefer Apple products and continue buying them. In comparison, Samsung’s share rose from 36% to 37% over the last twelve months.

It should be noted, however, that the aforementioned report is based on the survey conducted by CIRP among only 500 people, so its results should be taken with a few pinches of salt.

Anyway, the numbers shown in the chart below demonstrate a general trend - while the shares of Apple’s rivals decline slowly, the Cupertino-based tech giant continues to improve its position on the market.

iPhone SE Is Popular Among Former Android Users



According to the latest report from Slice Intelligence, the smaller 4-inch iPhone SE lures more Android switchers than the flagship iPhone 6s released in 2015. The figures shared by the analysts are based on the reports about SE pre-orders, so I guess we can trust what we see.

As noted by the experts, about 35% of early iPhone SE adopters purchased an iPhone online in the course of past two years. Nearly 16% of new owners of the 4-inch device are former Android users. If to compare these figures with those of the iPhone 6s, we’ll see that former Android owners made only 10% here.

Apple hasn’t yet announced the exact number of iPhone SE units pre-ordered in the first-wave launch countries. However, the company is expected to do this at a special conference call dedicated to the financial results in the second quarter of fiscal 2016 on April 25th.
