This is the King of World Smartphones, Not HP from China (Xiaomi, Vivo & Oppo)

Among Chinese smartphones, namely Apple, Xiaomi, Oppo, and Vivo, it is still not able to shift Samsung's position as the king and ruler of the world smartphone market. This is one of the results of research from Canalys.

In the third quarter of 2021, Canalys on Monday (18/10/2021) noted that Samsung controlled 23% of the world's smartphone market share. In second place is Apple with a 15% market share which was boosted by the launch of its newest smartphone product, the iPhone 13.

In the third place, there is Xiaomi with a market share of 14%. Then there are Vivo and Oppo which have a market share of 10% each, as quoted by CNBC from Canalys' official statement, Monday (18/10/2021).

Canalys noted that in the third quarter of 2021, global smartphone shipments fell 6%. The reason is because smartphone vendors have to face a shortage of components.

"The shortage of chipsets has really arrived," said Canalys Principal Analyst Ben Stanton. "The smartphone industry is trying to maximize the production of the best possible devices."

"On the supply side, chipset manufacturers are increasingly increasing prices as a disincentive to strong demand. The chip supply shortage is predicted to last until 2022."

Canalys predicts smartphones that have been stored by sellers and distributors are running low. As a result, the demand for smartphones in the next wave becomes difficult to meet. This of course will affect the provision of non-aggressive discounts from smartphone vendors.
