In this study, we provide a market forecast and analysis of the handset market in the CEE region. This encompasses data on shipments of mobile phones, analysis of the market outlook by product category (feature phones, smartphones), operating system, and air interface, and includes advice for technology suppliers. We conclude this document by outlining the key drivers and inhibitors shaping the market in 2015–2019. "Much of the CEE handset market is nearing maturity, with the transition to smartphones largely complete. However, some areas of the region are much less advanced, while the Russian market is in a slump due to the current economic recession. Here we look at the component sections of the regional market and the composite outlook over the next five years." — Simon Baker, senior program manager for mobile phones, IDC CEMA
