Mobile World Congress cancelled: What this means for the smartphone industry? #coronavirus

Following the news that GSMA has decided to cancel Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, as a result of the risk associated with the Coronavirus, the mobile industry and its stakeholders are now taking stock as to what this precisely means for the market this year. MWC is one of the most important consumer electronics trade shows of the year, representing an industry that accounts for more than half of the $1 trillion+ consumer spend on electronic devices spent in 2019. Its cancellation will present a range of short- and medium-term challenges to the smartphone industry this year and could have far reaching consequences moving forward.
