Chinese telecoms giant Huawei said revenues topped $100bn in 2018, hitting 721.2bn yuan ($107bn), while net profit jumped 25% to 59.3bn yuan. Looking at the smartphone market as a whole, Huawei remains the second-largest supplier in the world, with approximately 14% of the global market share (Counterpoint Research). In retrospect, Samsung remains the largest with a 19% market share, and Apple taking the third spot with 12%. The Shenzhen-based firm said global revenue surged 19.5% in 2018, its fastest pace of growth in two years and this result was bolstered by stronger smartphone sales in China.
With the advancement of 5G technology in the US and EU, privacy and security concerns have been risen over Huawei’s network and its link to the Chinese government. Huawei continuously reiterate that they stand as an independent company and strongly denies its products pose a security risk. America, Australia and New Zealand have all blocked local firms from using Huawei to provide the technology for their 5G networks, with several EU nations voicing their concern as 5G beings rolling out.
