It is pretty evident by now on how the US ban on Huawei has hit the company. While chipset makers like Qualcomm, Intel, ARM have cut ties with the Chinese electronics equipment maker, the search engine tech giant, Google has also revoked Android License for the future Huawei phones. Well, industry experts have predicted the sales of the Huawei products are likely to go down due to the impact of the ban, the Europen country Germany appears to be the first country, wherein the Huawei smartphones have hit low, reports WinFuture.
According to the report, which cited the source from German mobile communication industry has stated that consumers in Germany are apparently frightened to purchase Huawei especially the smartphones, which are proven to have had great hardware made by the company and also were on par with the devices made by other conglomerates likes Apple and Samsung. The report indicates the Huawei sales figures have been significantly dropped in the month of May after the ban.
The report also cites statistics from Gesellschaft für Konsumforschung (GfK), which showcases the market share of Huawei in which, the first week of the company’s share has been 26 percent, before the ban. After the ban had been imposed, the market share of Huawei has said to be gone south with a share of only 6 percent, according to Gfk statistics. These statistics by Gfk are often considered to be accurate as per the current market situation, suggests the report.
The report also reveals sales of smartphones manufactured by Huawei’s sub-brand Honor has also been affected due to the ban imposed by the US. The purchases of products from the Chinese sub-brand have been declined by 40 percent, the statistics suggest, and the sales have further dropped by 50 percent for Huawei products as well.
All in all, the ban from the US on Huawei has begun to affect the company in terms of sales, on the contrary, the Chinese tech giant has recently topped its sales surpassing Smsanug and Apple in China with its wide range of consumer products. We have to wait and see how Huawei picks up from this hassle; reports suggest Huawei has already been preparing for this ban, and the company is said to be working/testing on its own operating system called HongMengOS as Google had canceled the Android License.
A recent report from XDA Developers had also suggested Huawei requesting Android app developers to integrate their apps within Huawei’s ‘App Gallery’ platform, which is the company’s native app store that comes with Huawei’s proprietary EMUI. The company had also promised full support for the developers to help them publish their app in the App Gallery. Stay tuned to PhoneRadar for more such interesting updates.
