There are 2 billion iPhones in circulation worldwide, and in the Japanese smartphone market, iPhone boasts an astonishing 70% of the market share, which is unmatched by any other company.
However, in the world, nearly 90% of the market is dominated by Android, so it can’t be called the most popular smartphone in the world like Japan.
The reason for Japan’s high market share compared to the rest of the world is because of its national character.
1.Android is not a hardware and software match.
Android is not the name of the phone, but the name of the software.
This is an unsurprising fact and a big difference from the iPhone.
When Android has a problem, it’s confusing to contact the company because they don’t know whether it’s the hardware or the software that’s causing the problem.
On the other hand, iPhone has the advantage of being developed and provided by Apple, which allows us to respond quickly in case of a problem.
2. Political issues between China, Japan, and Korea.
Korean and Chinese companies reign supreme in the market share of Android-based smartphones.
This may not be a favorite company for Japanese who are sensitive to bribery and political use of information.
3. High efficiency for dealers.
Although Android has a high price per contract and good profit margins, the majority of customers do not really understand how to use Android.
On the other hand, customers understand the functionality of iPhone beforehand, so they spend less time on navigation than on Android.
As a result, retailers can focus on selling the iPhone more efficiently rather than the high-margin Android phone, and what they lack in profit, they can make up for in accessories, such as iPhone cases, to generate more sales than the Android phone.
It makes sense why retailers give priority to iPhone accessories.
This is one of the reasons why iPhone can almost dominate the Japanese smartphone market.
