Smartphone shipments in mainland China fell by 10% year on year in the second quarter of 2022 to 67.4 million units, according to a Friday report by Canalys. Vivo shipped the most smartphones this quarter with 13.2 million units, representing a 20% market share in mainland China. However, the brand still had a 28% year-on-year decrease in shipments in the second quarter. Honor, with the largest year-on-year growth at 88%, shipped 13 million units, second only to Vivo. Apple saw 25% year-on-year growth, with 9.9 million units shipped in the second quarter, representing 15% of mainland China’s smartphone market by shipments. Among the top five brands by second quarter shipments in mainland China, Oppo, including its subsidiary OnePlus, saw the largest year-on-year decrease, a 30% drop. “Chinese consumers are holding back spending on smartphones,” said Canalys Analyst Toby Zhu. “Given the domestic economic downturn, people are worried about falling disposable income and unemployment. Fragile consumer sentiment has put pressure on vendors trying to grow.” He added that even “618,” the biggest annual e-commerce promotion, failed to pull the market back to last year’s level.
