Chinese company Xiaomi has confirmed its success in the field of smartphones and is once again becoming the third largest smartphone manufacturer in the world. He follows such greats as the South Koreans Samsung and extremely popular Apple.
Xiaomi: Again the third largest smartphone manufacturer (Q4 / 2020)
The popular producer has not stopped growing in Europe either and has confirmed this with its results practically all over the world. According to the latest IDC study, Xiaomi managed to increase sales by 32% compared to the same period last year.
The results published for the fourth half of 2020 confirm that Xiaomi is again in third place among smartphone vendors. While the last three months of 2019 marked sales of 32,8 million units, the end of 2020 marks up to 43,3 million units.
As a result, the percentage was able to increase by 32% and the market share also increased. It grew from the original 8,9% at the end of 2019 to the current 11,2% at the end of 2020. Xiaomi thus outperforms Samsung with a share of 19,1% and Apple with a share of 23,4%, which it gained mainly due to sales of four hot news iPhone 12 series.
Also a year-on-year increase in the ranking
The Chinese manufacturer also grew year-on-year in terms of year-round deliveries of smartphones. Growth of a solid 19% was secured in fourth place in this ranking. Huawei was preceded by Huawei (including its subsidiary Honor at the time), which, however, fell by as much as 22%.
The first two places in the year-round ranking are the domain of Samsung and Apple. Samsung sold more than 255 million units (a year-on-year decrease of 14%), Apple sold more than 207 million units (a year-on-year increase of 5%).
2020 was a year full of challenges, but Xiaomi was able to make remarkable strides, placing number 3 in Q4 2020 and achieving YoY growth of 19% in 2020. Thank you again to all of our Mi Fans and partners. Here's to a great 2021! #NoMiWithoutYou pic.twitter.com/N1qXjWxPRg
