[Display Dynamics] Is Xiaomi ready for going global?September 22, 2014Xiaomi Corp. made headlines in early August after it took the crown from Samsung Electronics Co. in sales of smartphones in China in the second quarter of 2014. The result might vary depending on estimates calculated in different ways, but it came as a large shock that this only four-year old Chinese company is threatening Samsung Electronics, which has been the largest smartphone seller in the Chinese market for years where it successfully beat rival Apple Inc.
China: Where the iPhone is an Also-RanAugust 23, 2012Consumers everywhere love the iPhone, with its strong sales in almost every region of the world, keeping Apple Inc. in first or second place in the global smartphone rankings. However, there is one country where Apple isn’t No. 1 or No. 2—and doesn’t rank even among the Top 5.
Are we talking about some obscure nation where the locals don’t have access to essentials like iPhones?
No, we’re talking about the world’s most populous and economically vibrant country: China.
In China, Apple ranked in seventh place among smartphone brands during the first half of 2012
China’s Domestic PC Shipments Rise at Triple the Global Rate in 2012July 17, 2012China’s domestic PC shipments in 2012 are set to rise at three times the rate of the global market, driven by strong economic growth and insatiable demand from the commercial sector, according to an IHS iSuppli China Research report from information and analytics provider IHS (NYSE: IHS).
PC shipments for consumption in China for 2012 are projected to reach 83.6 million units, up 13.1 percent from 73.9 million units last year. In comparison, global shipments are set to increase by only 4.4 percent this year.
Domestic shipments of both desktop and notebook PCs to the Chinese market have been growing at robust double-digit rates for several years, and the healthy pace of expansion is set to continue for at least two more years before the market moderates slightly to a 9 percent increase in 2015.
