After declining in 2018, smartphone shipments could see some modest growth in 2019, according to a report from IDC out Tuesday.

In 2019, smartphone shipments could rise 2.6 percent and eventually hit about 1.57 billion units by 2022.

That growth could be attributed to a shift toward bigger screens, as well as higher-end phones, the report said.

"With many of the large global companies focusing on high-end product launches, hoping to draw in consumers looking to upgrade based on specifications and premium devices, we can expect head-to-head competition within this segment during the holiday quarter and into 2019 to be exceptionally high," said Sangeetika Srivastava, IDC senior research analyst.

For nearly half a decade now, device makers around the globe have been churning out smartwatches in hopes that they d become the next trend in technology.

Cutting-edge models currently on the market are far more polished and capable that their predecessors yet even still, consumer reception simply hasn t lived up to the hype.

For those hoping 2016 would be the turning point, the latest figures from the International Data Corporation IDC won t provide any solace.

According to preliminary results from the firm s Worldwide Quarterly Wearable Device Tracker, the worldwide smartwatch market experienced its first ever year-over-year decline.

In the second quarter of 2016, smartwatch vendors collectively shipped 3.5 million units compared to the 5.1 million units shipped during the same period a year earlier, resulting in a decline of roughly 32 percent.

Interestingly enough, Apple shipped the most units during the quarter – 1.6 million – but was the only vendor in the top five that experienced an annual decline in shipments.

Latest figures show 12.3 slump in tablet sales as battle for detachable market enters first stages

The global market for tablets fell yet again in the most recent quarter, this time by 12.3 percent, according to figures from IDC.

Sales, including detachables, reached 38.7 million as analysts claimed manufacturers were refocusing their product lines and customers held off on purchases.

An overwhelming majority of tablets shipped this past quarter were Android-based systems 65 percent followed by Apple iOS, which captured 26 percent, and Windows for the remaining share.

Though this trend has been constant for years, said IDC, there are early signs of change as the Android vendor list has contracted and champions of the OS have begun to offer Windows-based products, hedging against the decline of Android slates.

The market has spoken as consumers and enterprises seek more productive form factors and operating systems – it s the reason we re seeing continued growth in detachables, said Jitesh Ubrani, an analyst at IDC.

Computer shipments again declined in the third quarter, and though the retreat wasn't as steep as in recent periods, the sector remained troubled, according to two leading research firms.

International Data Corp. said shipments fell 3.9% world-wide for the period ended in September, pressured by a 13% slide posted by Apple Inc. IDC had projected overall shipments to fall 7.1%, the second straight quarter in which the slide was narrower than expected.

IDC researchers said the slowing fall in shipments might have less to do with recovering consumer demand and instead be linked to companies beefing up inventories as top players in the sector compete for market share amid the latest wave of consolidation.

We will need a strong holiday season to ensure that we don t enter 2017 in a poor inventory situation, said Linn Huang, an IDC research director.

IT -0.94 % estimated shipments fell 5.7% from the same period a year ago.

The firm said PC makers still faced a number of challenges, including weak back-to-school demand and continuing low demand in the consumer market, notably in emerging markets.
