- Global smartphone shipments reached 295 million units in Q1 2020 also declining-13% YoY growth as compared to Q1 2019.
- The top three brands, Samsung, Huawei and Apple, captured around 50% of the smartphone market, with the rest of the market left for hundreds of other brands to compete fiercely.
- Samsung led the smartphone market during the quarter capturing one-fifth of the global smartphone shipments. The OEM declined 18% YoY during the quarter and is expected to see a steeper decline in Q2 2020 amidst COVID-19 spread outside China.
- Huawei continued its push in China and surpassed Apple again during the quarter. The OEM declined 17% YoY during the quarter. Over half of the smartphone shipments for Huawei are now in China.
- Apple remained resilient even during the COVID-19 as iPhone shipments declined only 5% YoY during the quarter. The iPhone revenues were down 7% YoY for the same period. The impact on some European and Asian countries was mild.
- The smartphone market is resilient; smartphones are perceived by consumers as essential. However amidst COVID-19 outbreak, aside from replacing a broken phone, the purchase is usually discretionary and can therefore be delayed, effectively extending the replacement rate. The resulting contraction in the market will likely be short term in nature, we expect it to recover relatively quickly once the worst of the outbreak passes.
