Huawei maintains leadership in the 5G hardware market, while ZTE significantly raised its share
For Chinese companies Huawei and ZTE, the markets of the United States and some other countries are closed; which have ceased cooperation with them due to pressure from the United States. However, this does not appear to have affected the state of affairs of the Chinese telecom giants that much. Huawei and ZTE ranked among the global leaders in the 5G market in the first quarter of this year, according to data released by research firm Omdia.
Huawei has become the undisputed leader, overtaking absolutely all competitors. The second place is occupied by the Swedish Ericsson, and the third is Nokia. ZTE took the fourth position, significantly increasing its market share from 7.8% in the first quarter of last year to 12.3% in the first quarter of this year.
If we consider separately the supply of 5G NR equipment; then the first two places are occupied by Huawei and ZTE, respectively, followed by Ericsson and Nokia. In terms of revenue from sales of 5G NR equipment, Huawei is also in the lead; but ZTE is inferior to Ericsson. At the same time, the Chinese company showed an impressive growth in market share from 5.8% in the first quarter of 2020 to 16.4% this year.
The report states that in terms of network deployment, the Asia-Pacific region is significantly ahead of North America; as well as the Middle East, Europe and Africa. As of the first quarter of 2021, China had built 819,000 5G base stations; accounting for over 70% of all base stations installed worldwide.
