IDC: China's smartphone market slowly continues to decline in Q3 2019
According to IDC's quarterly research, the Chinese smartphone market is still in decline but it's starting to show signs of recovery. Year-over-year, the market has shrunk just 3.6%, which is much better performance compared to the previous two quarter.
During this quarter, the total sales were 98.9 million units with Huawei taking a dominant position and gaining significant market share at the expense of the other big local players. The Chinese tech giant recorded 42% market share and a 64.6% increase in shipments year-over-year.
vivo came in a distant second with 18.3% followed by sister brand Oppo with 16.6% and Xiaomi with 9.8%. Apple came in fifth posting a 5.6% growth in sales and taking 8.1% of the sales.
IDC believes that 5G will be the main driving factor for market growth in the coming quarters, particularly once the technology becomes available to mid-range and low-end devices.
