Xiaomi surpassed Samsung as world’s largest smartphone manufacturer

In June 2021, Xiaomi surpassed Samsung to become the world’s largest smartphone manufacturer by volume for the first time.

According to data supplied by Counterpoint Research, Xiaomi has surpassed Samsung in June 2021 as a result of a number of combined circumstances, although it still ranks second behind Samsung if the entire second quarter is considered.

Xiaomi‘s sales are expected to climb 26 percent month on month in June 2021, overtaking Samsung.

Tarun Pathak, research director at Counterpoint, explained the market change, saying, “Ever since the decline of Huawei commenced, Xiaomi has been making consistent and aggressive efforts to fill the gap created by this.”

Xiaomi had a 17.1 percent global smartphone shipping market share in June 2021, after by Samsung, which had a 15.7 percent market share, and Apple, which had a 14.3 percent market share.

Samsung, which has long ruled as the world’s leading smartphone vendor, has been hobbled by supply constraints caused by the market scenario in Vietnam, where Samsung makes and ships the majority of its phones.

On that topic, Counterpoint expects Samsung to recover once its supply concerns are overcome, which may cause Xiaomi to drop back to second place.

According to Counterpoint, Xiaomi has distributed over 800 million gadgets since its launch in 2011.

For quite some time, it has been India’s leading smartphone vendor, with Samsung in second place. A number of markets that were once dominated by Huawei and Honor are now being penetrated by a new OEM.

China, Europe and India continued to recover in June, and Samsung’s fall owing to supply problems boosted Xiaomi even more.

Samsung’s Galaxy S series and Xiaomi’s Mi 11 series have both become more popular among premium smartphone purchasers in recent months. In any case, it will be interesting to see how things pan out!
