Xiaomi surpasses Apple and becomes the third manufacturer worldwideAfter a fairly light second quarter, Xiaomi has managed to consolidate in the last quarter as the third mobile manufacturer, surpassing Apple.
Xiaomi is already the third worldwide
Already in October an IDC report was published announcing this fact, something that the Gartner report confirms again. Xiaomi is crowned as the third brand worldwide, with a market share of 12.1%, which translates into sales of 44.4 million phones. Apple falls to fourth position with a market share of 11.1% and sales of 40.5 million.
The difference between the two is minimal and Apple may regain third position in the last quarter of this year, now that its range of the iPhone 12 has already been launched on the market. Although Xiaomi has shown that it is a brand whose advance in the market seems to have no end. These last weeks of the year will be key.
In the third quarter of 2020, some 366 million mobile phones were sold worldwide, a decrease of 5.7% compared to last year. Samsung remains the best-selling brand in the world, with a market share of 22% and sales of 80.8 million phones. This represents an increase compared to last year, both in sales and in share, so it strengthens its position in the market.
Huawei remains second, although they continue to lose presence. They now have a market share of 14.1% (16.9% last year) and their sales remain at 51.8 million units, a notable drop from 65.8 million last year. This allows Xiaomi to be closer and closer to the global market and end up surpassing them at some point.
