Covid-19 | The World's Number One Phone Company

In April this year, Huawei snatched the title of world's number one company from Samsung for the first time after many years of efforts .

Now struggling with US sanctions, the company has overtaken Samsung to become the world's number one company during the April-June quarter.

Chinese media reports quoted technology market analytics company Canalys as saying that Huawei sold 55.8 million devices during April-June, compared to 53.7 million Samsung devices during the period.

Despite US sanctions, the Chinese market played a key role in Huawei's overtaking Samsung as global phone sales fell due to the Corona virus epidemic.

According to the report, Huawei sold two-thirds of its phones in China, where the Corona virus epidemic first broke out in the world, but now the situation there has improved considerably.

In contrast, sales of other companies have been affected by the rise in new cases of corona virus in other countries.

During April-June, sales of Huawei's devices fell by 5% compared to the same period last year, while demand for Samsung phones fell by 30% due to epidemics in key markets, including Brazil, the United States and Europe. There is a disease situation.

Outside of China, sales of Huawei's phones fell 27 percent in the second quarter of the year, but sales in China rose 8 percent and the company now has a market share of more than 70 percent.

According to the report, most people did not even anticipate this surprising result a year ago. If the Covide-19 epidemic had not spread, it would not have been possible for Huawei to replace Samsung.

As a result of severe lockdowns, smartphone demand in many countries has reached almost zero, while China has been working on economic recovery since March 2020 after overcoming the Corona virus epidemic, making it the most important for Huawei. The market is open.

Lack of Google services has led to a decline in sales of Huawei's new phones outside of China.

It is difficult to say how long Huawei's success will last, as global pandemic restrictions are easing and Samsung's sales are expected to rise again.

Remember that 2019 was a good year for Huawei and it maintained its second position globally despite US sanctions.

It should be noted that the smartphone market has suffered the worst decline in the history of the first quarter of 2020 as a result of the epidemic of Novel Corona virus .

According to Gartner, a company that monitors device sales, smartphone sales fell 20.2 percent from January to March compared to the same period last year.

The report said that the Corona virus epidemic, which started in December, affected the manufacture and sales of devices of several companies in China and then the virus spread around the world and succeeded in affecting the sales of smartphones.

Samsung sold the most phones in the first quarter of this year, with more than 55 million and a market share of 18.5 percent, but the South Korean company lost 22.7 percent compared to the same period last year.

Huawei also came in second with 14.2% share, selling more than 42 million phones, but lost 27.3% during the quarter.
