While the joint share of Huawei and Honor in the global market is declining, in China they manage to control almost half of the smartphone market – 46%. In other words, almost one of every two mobile phones sold in the second quarter of this year had the Huawei or Honor logo. Sales of 5G smartphones are particularly strong, accounting for 60% of all devices sold by companies.
In second place was Vivo, whose share in the Chinese market was 16%, which is 3% less than a year earlier. Oppo closes the top three, sales of which also decreased by 3% and its share is 16%. Interestingly, in fourth place was Apple, which, despite the coronavirus pandemic and production problems, was able to strengthen its position in the Chinese market – 9% against 6% a year earlier.
Xiaomi also managed to break into the top 5, which demonstrates stability this year – 9% in the first and second quarters of this year. But compared to the second quarter of last year, the company has lost its share, and it decreased by 3%.
CINNO Research also published its report on the state of affairs in the Chinese smartphone market for the second quarter. According to it, the picture looks even more depressing – the overall drop was 24.7%. But in terms of the market share, their information is consonant with the conclusions of Counterpoint, but the shares of the companies are still different.
Three leaders: Huawei – 40.2%, Vivo – 16.1% and Oppo – 15.6%. These three companies account for almost 2/3 of the mobile phone market – 71.9%. Apple has 11.8% and Xiaomi has 10.3%. Samsung still cannot boast of the popularity of its devices and its share was only 1.2%.
