The Cell Phone Repair industry has profoundly grown over the past five years due to several factors, including cheaper and more reliable mobile internet and the exploding popularity of smartphones, which are more fragile and therefore more likely to need repairs. Smartphones also feature higher price tags, which have led consumers to repair rather than replace them. However, as the industry reaches market saturation and the cost of replacement becomes more affordable, demand for this industry's services is expected to stall.
This industry primarily repairs and maintains cell phones. Some operators may also repair tablets such as iPads or other electronic devices as secondary businesses, which are also included in industry revenue. Industry operators include brick-and-mortar stores, which allow customers to bring in their cell phones for repair. Some stores also allow customers to mail in devices that need repairs.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
