Huawei sales skyrocketed massively in China last quarter
« on: May 01, 2019, 06:27:09 AM »
The worldwide smartphone market is looking pretty bleak at the moment and the situation in China is even worse. But despite these conditions, new data from Canalys shows that Huawei’s growth is basically unstoppable.
Huawei saved the Chinese smartphone market

Between January and March 2019, smartphone manufacturers managed to ship a total of 88 million devices in China. This number is down 3% year-on-year from the 90.7 million units that were shipped 12 months prior, but the relatively small decline suggests the worst could be over for the market. Since the second quarter of 2017, the Chinese smartphone market has continued to experience negative growth. More recently, in the first and fourth quarters of 2018 shipments declined a considerable 21% and 14% respectively.

Regarding the performance of individual smartphone manufacturers, Huawei was the only major brand to experience growth during the period. In fact, if Huawei’s growth is taken out of the equation, the Chinese smartphone market as a whole would have declined a whopping 12.5%.
