Product led growth in 2010.
For Samsung, where reports of forecast growth have been dwindling, this may be a sign of things to come.
There are multiple suggestions that the technology market has reached a ceiling and that Apple, with one of its largest shareholders, should take a decision soon on the future of the iPhone. Despite the fact that such a move could be a relatively modest move with Apple owning the market, Samsung should be wary.
As it relies on customers’ purchases, and donations, any slowdown in Samsung’s growth would be a disaster for the brand and for Apple as it had already shown that doing so would result in profits to the tune of $5-$6 billion.
Investors should be aware that the core of Apple’s profits are the market share that is acquired by the company, and that Samsung, once a forefront of the technology industry, has now started to lose that position..
