Telset.id, Jakarta – The global smartphone market experienced a negative trend in the second quarter (Q2) of 2022. There was a sharp decline in the number of shipments, by 9% compared to the previous quarter. Even so, Samsung and Apple managed to lead the HP market in the second quarter of this year.
Quoted The telephone from GSM Arena On Saturday (30/7/2022), the Canalys research institute said there had been a 9% decrease in the number of shipments to 287 million units. The reasons for this drop in deliveries are manifold.
For example, business conditions that made the value of the US dollar decline, geopolitical problems, many Chinese companies experiencing problems in key markets such as India, and high inflation in many countries.
In the same report, Canalys also announced the market performance for each vendor. As a result, Samsung managed to occupy the first position because it was able to send 61.8 million units of HP so that it was able to gain a 21% market share.
This trend shows an increase in the number of shipments by 6% compared to shipments in Q2 2021.
In second place is Apple. Vendors from the United States surprisingly managed to beat vendors from China. They were able to ship 49.5 million iPhones with a 17% market share.
Just like Samsung, this result shows that there is an 8% increase in the number of shipments compared to the same quarter last year.
“Samsung remains in the lead, while Apple takes back second place from Xiaomi as Chinese companies struggle to respond to dwindling demand,” Canalys wrote.
While under Samsung and Apple, there is Xiaomi which is able to ship 39.6 million units of HP this year, or equivalent to 14% market share.
Despite being in third position, Xiaomi’s trend in Q2 2022 tends to be negative considering that shipments decreased by 25% compared to Q2 2021. At that time the company managed to ship almost 52.8 million units of HP.
Fourth is occupied by Oppo. The Guangdong subsidiary of BBK Electronics was only able to ship 27.3 million units with a market share of 10 percent. Results showing a 22% drop in shipments compared to Q2 2021.
While in fifth position is Vivo which shipped 25.4 million units with a market share of 9%. In line with Xiaomi and Oppo, the results in this quarter were also not better than Q2 2021, aka a 19% drop in shipments.
“China had a number of lockdowns during the quarter, which disrupted its smartphone market and hurt local brands, which have a strong presence there,” Canalys said.
It is predicted that this trend will continue until the second half of 2022, although there are many new HP launch events and sales festival events. [NM/IF]
