"According to a November 2011 research note from Canaccord Genuity, Apple Inc. holds 52% of the total mobile industry's operating profits, while only holding 4.2% of the global handset market."
That 4.2% number means that there's plenty of room for growth worldwide. On the other hand, apparently roughly 60% of all cell phones sold in the US were smartphones. So there's far less room for growth in the US.
