China's smartphone market in decline

Graham Watson

29th January 2018

A rather remarkable bit of data from China - smartphone sales are down in the world's largest smartphone market. Has the market reached saturation point? And if so, does this mean that consumers are simply going to trade-up rather than buy new phones?

The other unusual feature of the market is that it isn't dominated by Apple and Samsung. Instead, indigenous brands such as Huawei, Oppo and Vivo are the major players in the Chinese handset market.
