Huawei Looks to Emerging Markets for Growth

by Ken Hyers | 11月 21, 2014

Even as its share in the North American market steadily shrinks, Huawei's global handset shipments rose +15% annually during Q3 2014. Most of Huawei’s cellphone volumes now ship into developing regions like Africa, and we note the Chinese vendor is quietly evolving into an “emerging markets specialist”.  Even as Huawei focuses more of its attention on emerging markets, it is managing to steadily increase ASPs, in part by focusing on phablets. However, by concentrating on emerging markets at the expense of growth in developed ones such as Western Europe, Huawei risks ceeding market opportunties to Chinese vendors like Lenovo, ZTE, and others.
