Digitimes Research: China vendors ship over 101 million smartphones in 2Q14
Anthony Chen, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Thursday 31 July 2014]

China-based vendors shipped 101.7 million smartphones in the second quarter of 2014, increasing 24.6% on quarter, according to Digitimes Research.

Xiaomi Technology, Huawei Device and Coolpad were the three largest vendors shipping 14.8 million, 13.5 million and 10.1 million units respectively, Digitimes Research indicated.

Of the shipments, 37.8 million units were shipped in overseas markets, rising by 10.2 million units on quarter. TCL Communication Technology, Huawei and ZTE were the three largest vendors overseas.

As many vendors have put off launching 4G smartphones from the second quarter to the third, large demand for smartphones in the China market is expected in the second half of 2014.

In addition to TCL and ZTE, Huawei, Xiaomi and Lenovo have been enhancing overseas marketing, and overseas markets may account for 40% of China-based vendors' total smartphone shipments in the second half of 2014.

China-based vendors will ship 412 million smartphones in 2014, growing 30.5% on year.
