Vietnam Unofficial Smartphone Imports Market Study, 2014

Vietnam Unofficial Smartphone Imports Market Study, 2014

This IDC study provides an insightful glimpse into the market structure and dynamic scenario of the Vietnam unofficial smartphone imports market. This study discovers the business structure of how smuggled handsets flow into the country as well as Vietnam's total smartphone market shipment in 2013, including both official and unofficial imports by IDC definitions. In addition, it also shares current business and demographic developments in the country that make it become a hotbed of both parallel and smuggled smartphone imports.

"There are inherent social and geographical characteristics of Vietnam that make the country attractive for unofficial imports of goods. The current proliferation of consumer smart handheld devices is generating opportunities for channel players and importers to take additional legal risks for a number of rewards. In the long run, market maturity and strong enforcement of the laws will help to slow down the import flow and recreate a more equal-playing field for all players," says Thanh Vo, senior market analyst, Client Devices, IDC Vietnam.
