Driving Factors

The Canadian smartphone market is heavily influenced by technological advancements and ongoing innovation. This market driver is distinguished by the speed with which smartphone manufacturers introduce new features, hardware upgrades, and software enhancements to attract customers. Furthermore, smartphone manufacturers are constantly competing to introduce cutting-edge features such as better camera capabilities, augmented reality (AR) applications, foldable displays, and enhanced security features such as facial recognition and fingerprint scanners. Consumers in Canada are often drawn to smartphones with the most cutting-edge technologies, which drives market demand. Consumer preferences and lifestyle choices significantly influence the Canadian smartphone market. Many consumers look for smartphones with powerful processors and high-quality cameras to meet their social and entertainment needs. These shifting consumer preferences push smartphone manufacturers to create devices that cater to a diverse range of user lifestyles, which drives market growth. Smartphone pricing is critical in the Canadian market, and ecosystem and software integration are becoming increasingly important market drivers.


Restraining Factors

Large organizations suffer greatly as a result of high production volume and supply chain operations, whereas small and medium-sized businesses see little impact. Furthermore, the shortage of semiconductor components is directly affecting the market because these components are critical to overall product usage and innovation strategies. In the event of a component shortage, companies are establishing semiconductor manufacturing facilities, which may alleviate the shortage. Furthermore, fake sensor applications to generate fake face recognition and fingerprints are predicted to hamper the growth of the Canadian smartphone market.


Market Segment

  • In 2023, the iOS segment accounted for the largest revenue share over the forecast period.

Based on the operating system, the Canada smartphone market is segmented into Android, iOS, windows, and others. Among these, the iOS segment has the largest revenue share over the forecast period. As 5G networks continue to roll out in Canada, consumers are looking for smartphones that can fully utilize this technology. This has prompted smartphone manufacturers to prioritize 5G compatibility in their most recent releases, intensifying competition. iOS preferences among Canadian consumers are also influenced by carrier agreements and pricing.  Furthermore, Apple phones are experiencing increased demand in Canada. Especially among the young population. iOS is more document-friendly and produces less heat than other operating systems.



  • In 2023, the OLED segment is witnessing largest growth over the forecast period.

Based on display technology, the Canada smartphone market is segmented into OLED, AMOLED, LCD, and others. Among these, the OLED segment is witnessing largest growth over the forecast period. One of the primary reasons for OLED's dominant position in the Canadian smartphone market is its ability to provide an exceptional visual experience. OLED displays are known for their bright colors, infinite contrast ratios, and high image quality. The deep blacks and true-to-life colors create a visually immersive experience that appeals to consumers who demand high-quality displays for a variety of activities, including video streaming, gaming, and photography. Furthermore, OLED technology has energy-saving advantages over traditional LCDs. compared to LCDs, which depend on a backlight to illuminate the entire screen, OLED pixels emit light independently. This allows OLED screens to achieve greater power savings when displaying dark or black content, resulting in longer battery life—an essential factor for Canadian consumers who frequently use their smartphones in cold weather conditions.



  • In 2023, the online segment is witnessing significant growth over the forecast period.

Based on sales channel, the Canada smartphone market is segmented into supermarkets/hypermarkets, multi-branded stores, exclusive stores, online, and others. Among these, the online segment is witnessing significant growth over the forecast period. One of the primary reasons for the large share of online sales in the Canadian smartphone market is the convenience it provides to customers. Online shopping allows people to browse, compare, and buy smartphones from the comfort of their own homes or while on the go with their mobile devices. This convenience is especially appealing in a country like Canada, where harsh weather can make in-person shopping less appealing during certain seasons. Consumers can browse a wide range of smartphone models, read reviews, and make informed purchasing decisions without ever leaving their homes, all with a few clicks. Furthermore, the availability of user-generated reviews and ratings online enables consumers to make better decisions. They can learn about real-world experiences with specific smartphone models, which will help them choose the best device for their needs. This access to information promotes trust and confidence in online purchases, accelerating the growth of this sales channel.
