Worldwide shipment of smartphones is expected to reach its annual high in Q3 2016 according to market analytical firm Trend Force. The source claims that Huawei, Oppo, and Vivo will be the top smartphone manufacturers in Asia in terms of units sold.

Huawei to ship more this year

Trend Force is predicting that Huawei will likely face lower revenue compared to 2015 and not meet sales expectations of its recent P9 flagship, but will still produce more smartphones from 108 million to 119 million for a YoY increase of 10.2 percent. The manufacturer would still be the largest out of its nearest competitors by a wide margin.

Oppo and Vivo to grow even faster

In contrast to Huawei, Trend Force is expecting both Oppo and Vivo to grow by as much as 59.2 percent and 40.4 percent, respectively, as its devices have been well-received by consumers. Oppo could ship as much as 78 million smartphones and Vivo as much as 66 million.

Lenovo and Xiaomi slipping

The Asian market is becoming increasingly more difficult for Lenovo and Xiaomi as they are predicted to drop by as much as 15.7 percent and 13.2 percent, respectively. Nonetheless, they remain on the list of the top five smartphone manufacturers in China.

LeEco to experience the fastest growth rate

The smaller manufacturer is expected to ship 20 million smartphones this year compared to 5 million in 2015 for a growth rate of around 300 percent. LeEco is also the largest shareholder of the Coolpad Group, which gives it better leverage for selling and shipping devices internationally.

Asus and HTC still hanging on

Asus should be seeing a 34.3 percent growth rate this year while HTC is expected to sink even further from its already poor position by 26.8 percent. Its latest HTC 10 flagship smartphone has likely not been selling as well as the company had initially hoped.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s.
