Chinese company Huawei has surpassed competitive smartphone manufacturers in the second and third quarter of 2018 to attain the world’s second largest smartphone manufacturer spot with a 14.6% of global market share. In the last eight years, their sale has shot up by 66-fold growth. A remarkable achievement for Huawei from a decent sales figure of 3 million units in 2010 to 200 million units in 2018! These three factors have helped them in reaching out to the majority of people around the globe:
- It is available in 170 countries.
- Used by 1/3rd of the world’s population.
- 15 research and development centres set up in the U.S., Germany, Sweden, Russia, India and China.
The Huawei’s P20 series has attained the 16 million units sales mark from its release in March and half of that number reflects female buyers. The Mate 20 series have shipped 5 million units within two months of its launch. Also, the Nova series has played an important role in its growth in the line of mid-range smartphone devices.
Huawei also puts emphasis on consumer’s privacy and complies with Generally Accepted Privacy Principles (GAPP) for privacy protection which is considered to be the most stringent privacy technology framework in the world, as well as, all requirements set forth in the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer BG, stated, “Looking to the future, Huawei’s consumer business will focus on the core concept of ‘consumer-centric’, and will dare to keep innovating, and make every effort to become a pioneer and leader in the next wave of the smartphone revolution, as well as constantly create new value for consumers, let our consumers better enjoy their lives, and truly make Huawei a brand that is beloved by consumers the world over.”
