This decline is primarily attributed to the global COVID pandemic. 19. TrendForce adds that in 2020, they produced 1.5 billion units of smartphones.
The most negative impact is noted in Huawei, which is descending more and more in the list of manufacturers with the highest production volume. Although it remains in third place, the forecasts are negative.
If 2021 has a similar impact to 2020 on smartphone production, Huawei may witness a drastic reduction in production, according to TrendForce projections.
Huawei’s position remains at risk
Brands with Oppo, Vivo and Xiaomi are being relentless in their growth, mainly taking advantage of markets where Huawei is losing ground.
In Portugal, for example, Oppo is starting to gain a good market share, which is growing rapidly. All these Chinese brands are taking advantage of the difficult situation of the Chinese giant to “eat” sales.
