Samsung plans to reclaim lost positions in the smartphone market in 2022
Samsung is gearing up to secure a 21.9% global smartphone market share next year, 2.9 percentage points higher than expected in 2021. The company has shared the corresponding plans with the main suppliers.
According to the South Korean portal The Elec, in addition, the company is counting on aggressive marketing campaigns, thanks to which the manufacturer will be able to “fill the vacuum” that will be present after Huawei – the Chinese company cannot operate at full capacity due to US sanctions.
According to Samsung’s own estimates, when the United States first imposed sanctions on Huawei in May 2019, the total share of Chinese smartphones in the global market was 43.8%; in 2020, the vacuum from the reduction of Huawei’s business has led to the fact that other Chinese manufacturers have already occupied 47 % of the market. According to Samsung’s calculations, in 2021 they will occupy 45.5% of the market.
Also, Samsung calculated that in 2019 the share of Apple smartphones in the market was 14%, in 2020; 15.8%, and in 2021 it will be 17.2%. The share of Samsung itself in 2019 reached 20.9%, in 2020 – 19.6% and this year is likely to be 19%. Note that, according to TrendForce analysts, Apple’s share in the fourth quarter of 2022 will be much higher; and the company will overtake Samsung. But in total, by the end of the year, the Korean company will remain ahead.
