Last year Huawei shipped 206 million handsets worldwide. The company saw its momentum continue in the first quarter of this year with deliveries of 59 million units globally; that was a 50.3% year-over-year gain and made Huawei the second largest smartphone manufacturer in the world during the three-month period. It appeared that nothing could stop the company from surpassing Samsung to become the world's largest smartphone manufacturer next year. Back in 2016. Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei's consumer business group, said that the company would top Samsung and Apple by 2021 and Huawei was set to accomplish this task a year earlier than expected. But one move by the U.S. government set off a chain reaction that has changed everything.

In the U.S. Huawei is considered a threat to national security because of a law in China that could force Huawei to gather intelligence on behalf of the communist government. Despite continued denials from Huawei, the company's products are thought to contain backdoors that could send information to Beijing. Last month, the Trump administration had the manufacturer placed on the Commerce Department's Entity List. This prevents the firm from accessing parts and software from the U.S. and has led a number of key suppliers to cut ties with Huawei. Google, Qualcomm, Intel, and ARM Holdings are just some members of the company's supply chain that will no longer do business with Huawei once a limited 90-day reprieve ends in August.
