Counterpoint Technology Market Research reports that smartphone sales in the Chinese market in the second quarter of this year collapsed by 17% compared to the same period in 2019. However, Huawei has strengthened its position in the home market.
The reason for the observed picture is the spread of coronavirus infection, which provoked the closure of communication salons. However, analysts say a 9 percent increase in shipments was recorded on a quarterly basis, indicating a gradual recovery in the industry.
Curiously, every third device sold in China last quarter supported fifth generation (5G) cellular communications. This is a record high on a global scale.
Huawei is stronger than ever in the PRC market. This company, according to estimates by Counterpoint Technology Market Research, in the second quarter of 2020 occupied a record 46% of the industry. In other words, almost half of all smartphones sold in three months in China were released by Huawei or its subsidiary Honor.
Moreover, Huawei is the undisputed leader in the 5G segment, with a share of approximately 60%.
In terms of sales growth, Apple was ahead of the pack, with shipments up 32% year on year. For comparison: Huawei was able to demonstrate an increase of 14%.
