“In my last post, we had estimated 150-170 million global iPhone sales over the next four quarters, based on the impact of the last three iPhone launches on QoQ growth patterns,” Sameer Singh writes for Tech-Thoughts.
“Now, let’s use the same methodology to reach a realistic sales estimate for the iPhone for each of Apple’s non-retail operating segments (regions), i.e. the Americas, Europe, Japan and APAC,” Singh writes. “Since the iPhone’s average sales price (ASP) is fairly consistent across geographies, we can get a decent estimate of region-wise iPhone shipments, by looking at quarterly shipment figures and Apple’s revenue break-up by operating segment.”
Singh writes, “M full-year estimate is 60-70 million sales in the Americas, 40-50 million in Europe, 10-13 million in Japan and 35-45 million in the APAC region , totaling to about 150-170 million iPhone sales globally.
