Although the Wufei epidemic is not over yet, the smartphone market has begun to recover. According to the latest report of the market research company Counterpoint Research, the overall shipment of smartphones in the first quarter of 2021 was close to 355 million units, representing an annual growth rate of 20%. , But compared with the fourth quarter of last year, there was a 10% drop.
According to Counterpoint Research, the smartphone brand with the highest shipment in the first quarter of this year was Samsung, accounting for 22% of the total, followed by Apple with 17% and Xiaomi with 14%. As for OPPO and vivo each accounted for 11% and 10%, while Huawei, which had been the first brother at the beginning of last year, only accounted for 4% of the total market in the first quarter of this year.
The reason why Huawei’s shipments have dropped significantly is due to their continued sanctions on the US Department of Commerce’s entity list. Huawei’s inability to order its own Kirin processors from chip manufacturer TSMC has greatly hindered their mobile phone production and shipments. In November last year, Huawei’s dismantling of Honor was also the reason for the sharp drop in overall shipments.
