Xiaomi_MiBand_smart_bracelet_6When it comes to smartphones, Xiaomi appears to be catching up to giants such as Apple and Samsung which is impressive given that both Apple and Samsung have been in this game for a while, not to mention Xiaomi’s offerings are typically limited in Asia whereas Apple and Samsung are global.
2-Xiaomi teams up with Jingdong to bolster sagging sales
Xiaomi, a leading indigenous mobile-phone brand in China, has teamed up with e-commerce platform Jindong Mall, reversing its past reluctance to do so because of the latter’s own management policy for 3C products, in order to bolster its sagging sales.
Despite its meteoric rise to sixth spot, with shipment of 15 million units and 4.4% share of the global market in the first quarter, Xiaomi is facing growing competition on the domestic front, as many newcomers have replicated its success pattern in rolling out diverse low-price models via direct online sales to consumers. Such coattail riders include Vivo which ranked 10th place worldwide with shipment of 9.3 million units in 2014, OPPO which boasted shipments of 8 million units, and Meizu whose flagship model Meilan Note scored 45% growth in shipments. Others gearing up to join the fray include LeTV, ZUK, and Qikoo.
The situation has been aggravated by the growing saturation of the Chinese market, whose shipment of smartphones plunged 12.7% sequentially to 106 million units in the first quarter, according to Sina’s tech news portal. As a result, it has become a tall order to major Chinese brands Huawei, Lenovo, TCL, and Xiaomi to achieve their sales goals of breaking the 100 million mark this year.
