Continue slowly dropping data about the smartphone market in early 2014, e It is interesting to analyze the Chinese market a little, not only because it is the largest worldwide and where most manufacturers are concentrated, but also because probably the market with widely distributed around the world cake.
While all expect the international expansion announced with the signing of Hugo Barra and after exhausting units of almost all their releases based on records, Xiaomi has now reached the third place of the Smartphone market in China, only surpassed by Samsung and Lenovo.
Already not they may excuse themselves in its production capacity to launch so limited their devices or to delay their departure to the international markets, and it is that take 11% of Chinese cake, the most delicious of all, indicates a higher production capacity We all hoped that.
Lenovo remains 12% share while Samsung, King also in China but with less margin than in other countries such as ours, sum a 18% share. Curious is see how Xiaomi overcomes in his native country with HTC, Apple, Huawei, ZTE or Oppo, all them most recognized world manufacturers.
What is clear is that the market in China is different from the rest of the world, because here the things are fairly distributed, especially among minority manufacturers looking for an excellent quality/price ratio: is not trivial to see a 19% share under the heading “Others”.
It is also clear that the unresolved issue of Xiaomi is to reach more countries, because his own already dominate and in the rest of the world look forward to them with open arms. We will see if it is 2014 year chosen to make the leap, even more seeing how dare other smaller OnePlus.
