Nine of the world’s twelve most shipped smartphone manufacturers are headquartered in China, according to semiconductor market research firm IC Insights.

The company recently updated its 2018 IC Market Drivers Report in which it documented the applications fueling demand for integrated circuits (ICs). According to the report, Apple and Samsung still dominate the market for high-end smartphones (over $200). The two companies combined shipped over 530 million smartphones in 2017, controlling 36% of the market share.

While these two companies controlled the high-end range, their shipments saw little growth. However, Huawei, OPPO, Vivo, and Xiaomi, coming in at third, fourth, fifth, and sixth on the list respectively, witnessed between a 10% and 73% increase in shipments.
