Do you remember the time when when Microsoft Corporation had around 90% market share in the lucrative computing market? Well, it was around 20 years ago, when Microsoft was the undisputed market leader in computer market while other companies, most notably Apple, were fighting for relevance and market share.
However, it’s been long and a lot has changed since then. Beginning with the quite reemergence of Apple in the second half of 1990s and first half of 2000s, the market was completely turned upside down with the release of first iPhone in 2007. With this, Microsoft started to lose its dominant market position as an undisputed market leader.
Now it is Microsoft Windows’ turn to struggle for relevance and market share while the other operating system is as popular and widely accepted as Windows once was. However, it’s not Apple that has risen in prominence and dominance though - Mac OS and iOS still trail Microsoft Windows in terms of market share. It’s Android that has risen and taken over the controls from Microsoft.
According to Gartner's latest Market Report, Google's open source operating system will be installed on almost 60% of all connected devices shipped this year. That includes PCs, mobile phones, tablets and other devices. Back in 2014, well above one billion Android devices were shipped globally, likely bringing the count of Android's installed base to more than two billion devices.
Following chart presents a forecast of smartphone operating system market share in the year 2015 and 2019.
