Table: How a Consolidation Might Play Out


Company & market share

NOKIA, 31%

Finnish giant plans to lower margins and build market share to a dominant 40%

MOTOROLA, 15%

U.S. power has the early jump on next-generation phones, but Asians are more likely to gain share

ERICSSON, 10%

Swedes are already outsourcing to Asia but could exit the business altogether

SIEMENS, 7%

German giant is a good bet to survive consolidation but must expand in Asia and U.S.

PHILIPS, 5%

Look for the Dutch to drop out, perhaps selling the business to Samsung or Matsushita

ALCATEL, 6%

Au revoir cell phones, unless the French can team up with an Asian partner

SAMSUNG, 5%

A survivor, likely to be shopping for a partner or acquisition in Europe

MATSUSHITA, 8%

If European consolidation leaves factories vacant, look for Japanese power to fill them
