Samsung Loses Share of Market for First Time in The Last Four Years

There is no infinite growth, a maximum applicable to almost everything and now the results of the Korean giant Samsung, which although still commanded strong the Smartphone market, It has lost share for the first time in four years.

It was something that was predicted after the presentation of the latest financial results from Samsung, which was receding in benefits for the first time in two years, and is now confirmed with the balance presented by the own Samsung and by Strategy Analytics, as always the data published by the manufacturer are quite biased.

No official sales figures, estimate analysts that Samsung has sold some 89 million mobile phones in the first three months of 2014, maintaining a market share of 31.2% and leading the market strong.

This contrasts with the 32.4% recorded in the same period of last year, which means the first loss of share of Samsung since Android is in between us.

Apple stays in second place, also with a lowered share enough accused from 17.5 to 15.3%, and in the third step appears Huawei with a 4.7% of the market.

Especially striking is the rise in share of Lenovo, recent new owner of Motorola, climbing from a 3.9% share to be very on par from compatriot Huawei. It is safe in coming quarters Lenovo will be on the third step if we have the contribution of the American firm.

There is no more data in the report on other manufacturers, although the field ‘Other’ with a significant growth of nearly 3 points clearly shows where the main loss of Apple and Samsung has gone.

Again a small setback in the benefits

Where if has given information officer Samsung is on account of benefits, and that shareholders have to put evidence on the table.

So, Samsung has lost 3.3% of profits compared to the first quarter of the previous year, although data of telephony and communications division is maintained almost stable in the comparative.

The Koreans blamed the loss to the seasonality of some sources of income, and rely on these results in the coming years paliarán the next FIFA/Coca-Cola world which will be held in Brazil, as well as the launch of its new S5 Galaxy.
