The push-button mobile phone market is still alive and quite large



Perhaps we will surprise someone now, but not only smartphones are still popular in this world, but also good old push-button phones. We were even a little surprised that there are quite a lot of them on sale, and not piece lots.

And here even there are segment leaders, many recognizable brands and a struggle for superiority in the market. A lot of these phones are shipped in the world. But news reports about this market are so rare that it seems like the first time it happened. In general, let’s take a look at the leaders of this market and how well push-button dialers are selling and where they are popular.

The research organization Counterpoint Research has calculated, looked and told us that:
These phones are most popular in third world countries. And the biggest key phone manufacturers are iTel, HMD Global (Nokia), Samsung, Tecno, and Lava. The South Korean giant was able to unload as many as 7.4 million phones in the third quarter of this year and holds 10% of the total market. Tecno has done about the same, by the way. The leader here is iTel, which occupies 24% of the total market. And Nokia is in second place with 14% of the market. In just the third quarter, these guys shipped a whopping 74 million phones. They are best sold in Africa and the Middle East. But with all this, sales overall were down 17% from last year.
