NPD DisplaySearch has said demand from the Middle East, Asia Pacific, and Latin America is driving the growth of the low-cost smartphone market as well as manufacturers' use of the Android operating system, Dow Jones has reported. According to the latest figures from the research group, shipments of sub-$150 handsets has been doubling year-on-year since 2010, and the trend looks set to continue until 2016, when shipments are expected to hit 311 million. Sub-$200 Android phones currently account for 2% of total worldwide smartphone shipments. However, by 2016 low-cost Android phones alone could account for up to 29% of global smartphone shipments, or the equivalent of the entire worldwide smartphone market in 2010, the report said.
