Huawei May Become the World’s Biggest 5G-Phone Maker This Year

Huawei is expected to become the world’s largest 5G-enabled smartphone manufacturer in 2020, driven by growing demand in its home China market, where mobile carriers are racing to roll out 5G wireless networks.

A total of 235 million 5G-enabled smartphones will roll off production lines worldwide this year, about 31% of which will be produced by Huawei, according to market research firm TrendForce. The Chinese telecom giant will make 74 million units, TrendForce predicted.

Apple will claim second place with an output of 70 million 5G-ready smartphones, giving it a global market share of 30%, while Samsung will be third with 12%, TrendForce predicted. Huawei’s Chinese peers ― Vivo, Oppo, and Xiaomi ― will obtain their respective global market shares of 9%, 8% and 8%, it added.

“Huawei is shifting its focus to the domestic Chinese market as a result of U.S. sanctions and China’s aggressive plans to accelerate 5G technology’s commercialization,” TrendForce said in a post last week.

China now has at least 6.6 million devices, including handsets, that are connected to 5G wireless networks powered by more than 400,000 5G base stations, according to an official from the country’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT).

In June, domestic shipments of 5G-enabled phones swelled to 17.5 million units, accounting for 61.2% of total handset deliveries for the month, according to data from the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology, an MIIT-affiliated think tank.
