Gartner: Q3 delivered 366 million smartphones worldwide, down 5.7% year on year


According to reports, Gartner, an authoritative research organization, released a report today that global smartphone shipments in the third quarter of this year were 366 million, down 5.7% year-on-year.
Analysts said that although the third quarter smartphone shipment is still in a downward trend, but compared with the first half of this year, there is a significant improvement. In the first half of this year, smartphone sales fell 20% year-on-year as the new coronavirus epidemic affected consumer confidence and industry spending.
In terms of brands, Samsung continued to lead in terms of overall shipment volume of 80.8 million units in the third quarter, with a market share of 22%. Among the top five mobile phone manufacturers, only Samsung and Xiaomi saw an increase of 2.2% and 34.9% respectively.
With strong growth, Xiaomi surpassed apple in the third quarter in mobile phone shipment. Huawei kept the second place.
To be exact, Samsung shipped 80.82 million smartphones in the third quarter, with a market share of 22%. Huawei has 51.83 million units, with a market share of 14.4%. Millet is 44.41 million, with a market share of 12.1%. Apple has 40.6 million units, with a market share of 11.1%. Oppo is 29.89 million units, Huawei is 51.83 million units, the market share is 8.2%.
If the traditional functional mobile phones (non smart phones) are added, the global total mobile phone shipment in the third quarter was 401 million, a year-on-year decrease of 8.7%.
“In the third quarter, there were preliminary signs of recovery in some markets, including some mature Asia Pacific and Latin American markets,” anshul Gupta, senior research director at Gartner, said in a statement. China’s market is close to returning to normal, and smartphone production has improved, filling the supply gap in the third quarter, which has driven sales growth to a certain extent. In India, Indonesia and Brazil, smartphone sales rose by 9.3%, 8.5% and 3.3% respectively in the third quarter. ”
“Although market conditions have begun to improve, consumers are still limiting their discretionary spending,” Gupta said. From the second quarter to the third quarter of 2020, global smartphone sales experienced a moderate growth, mainly due to pent up demand in previous quarters. ” (Youya)
