Huawei 76% yearly Q2 2023 in smartphone market


IDC says that Huawei’s progress happened because of rapid launches. It is rebounding in shipments and the second quarter marks its largest increase among the top manufacturers.

Amid these key factors, Huawei keeps on gaining momentum in the home ground. And the latest 76% yearly growth rate shown in Q2 2023 report is the result of efforts made by Huawei to overcome challenges in the supply chain.


The Q2 2023 data shows that China’s smartphone market to ship about 65.7 million units, a year-on-year decrease of 2.1%. The decline rate has narrowed significantly compared to the past. Shipments in the first half of the year were about 130 million units, a year-on-year decrease of 7.4%.

Currently, the basic consumer demand has not yet recovered, so the shipments of manufacturers and the upstream of supply chain will not change significantly.
