Apple will Regain Profit and Share in the Coming Years According to Analyst

Android reportedly caused the drop of shares of Apple Inc. According to analysts and income reports of both companies, though Apple sold many iPads in the first quarter, their share in the tablet PC market decreased slightly and might continue this year. While Android platform together with Samsung, Apple’s greatest rival, is enjoying a huge leap of profit and increased market share.

But one analysts, Carl Howe, concluded that Apple might also cause a drop of profit and share of Android smartphones in the coming years.

In a poll conducted by the Yankee Group, they have gathered data from 16,000 which are smartphone users and fans. Half of the group owns an Android smartphone regardless of the brand, 30% owns an iPhone and only 7% owns a Windows Phone.

For those people who are planning to buy a new smartphone in the coming months, 42% are planning to get Apple’s iPhone and also 42% are opting for Android-based smartphones. The remaining are either getting a BlackBerry or Windows Phone.

With Howe’s conclusion with the results, he said “This high buying intention compared to ownership indicates that Apple will likely gain share against market leader Android within the period,”

According to Yankee, there are twice as many smartphone buyer are eyeing on iPhone in the next 6 months. Other Android-based smartphone manufacturers are showing low buying figure which means Apple will regain strength and will be victorious in the competition of smartphones.
