The Chinese biggest smartphone brands Huawei and Xiaomi both are expecting their smartphone shipments to be surged 20% more in 2019 as compared to 2017 and 2018.
Based on industry sources, FocalTech, MediaTek, Hixmax Technologies, Novatek Microelectronics as well as Sitonix Technology are expecting their shipments to be increased for the upcoming year as compared to the other local peers.
Well, it’s not that much easy as other Chinese smartphone brands such as Vivo and Oppo are expecting their sales to grow meaningfully in 2019 – due largely to their relatively weak momentum in developing in the markets outside China and India and a slowdown in domestic demand.
Aside from everything, Xiaomi and Huawei both performed exceptionally great in developing sales in India and other emerging markets. For example, Huawei has projected its annual shipments of smartphone for 2019 to reach at 200M units for a 25$ gush from 2018, without any doubt.
Xiaomi is backed by a complete ecosystem and indeed has developed a solid presence in the markets of India while fragmenting away market shares held by so many other peers in China. Huawei is expecting around 150 Million units to be shipped for 2019. Let’s see what happens.
Getting so much encouragement from Huawei and Xiaomi’s expectations, their supply chain partners in Taiwan are also expecting to post higher revenue increases as compared to the industry average growth in 2019.
Perhaps Huawei will achieve its target as according to the latest report, Huawei has now become world’s 2nd biggest smartphone brand sitting right under Samsung. Now, Apple is holding its position on number 3rd and Xiaomi on number 4rth.
