Jumping in the gap left by Huawei
With former rising star Huawei out of the way due to US sanctions, another Chinese manufacturer is emerging to take over the smartphone market — Xiaomi. The company could grow its shipments by a whopping 83% in the second quarter of 2021, making it the vendor with the second highest market share at 17%. It’s only narrowly surpassed by Samsung with a share of 19%.
It looks like Xiaomi’s low-budget strategy is paying off, as the company is mostly seeing astronomical growth rates in emerging markets like Latin America (300% growth) and Africa (150%).
