The refurbished smartphone market is expected to grow significantly over the next five years. This report explores global trends in the market for refurbished smartphones. It includes a five-year forecast of market size and segmentation by operating system (iOS and Android). It also considers competitive strategy, potential growth areas and how the competitive landscape could change over the next five years.
Sales of refurbished smartphones will continue to grow in the coming years
The refurbished smartphone market has been growing at a rapid pace over the last few years, which can be attributed to several factors:
- Refurbished smartphones are available in many countries—including emerging markets such as APAC, the Middle East and Africa, where affordable devices are in high demand. These countries have an estimated 96% of their population using cell phones, making them an ideal place for this type of sustainable technology.
- Refurbished smartphones can help save money on an expensive device without sacrificing quality or performance. They often come with new warranties from certified suppliers so you can rest assured that they’ll work just as well as new phones do (and may even be better).

Features like replacement warranty and insurance are key barriers to entry in this market
The refurbished smartphone market is expected to grow rapidly in the future. However, there are some barriers to entry such as replacement warranty and insurance.
The consumer demand for refurbished smartphones is growing rapidly due to several factors, including their lower price and longer life cycle.
The report concludes that the market for refurbished smartphones will continue to grow in the next five years and that this growth will be driven by the increasing demand for low-cost smartphones. However, there is a risk of commoditization as new entrants enter this market and offer similar features at lower prices than previous players. This can also pressure margins and profitability levels over time unless mobile operators find ways to differentiate their offerings or maintain an industry leadership position.
