About This Statistic

The statistic shows the market share of Lenovo in the global smartphone market (unit shipments) from the second quarter of 2012 to the fourth quarter of 2015. In the second quarter of 2013, Lenovo's market share in the smartphone market was at 4.7 percent.

Lenovo’s smartphone market share – additional information

Lenovo’s global smartphone market share reached the highest figure to date in the first quarter of 2015, when the Chinese company accounted for 5.6 percent of all shipments in the world. The company shipped almost 19 million smartphones worldwide during that quarter. In 2015, Huawei took the lead amongst all Chinese smartphone vendors, with 106 million units shipped worldwide, and about 7.4 percent of the market share. Lenovo accounted for 5.2 percent of the global market share, shipping more 74 million units, while Xiaomi held almost five percent. Yet, these three Chinese companies’ figures are far behind the industry’s leader, Samsung. In 2015 alone, the South Korean company shipped more than 320 million units worldwide.

China is not only home of three of the top five smartphone vendors, but it is also the largest smartphone market in the world. Domestically, the competition amongst smartphone vendors is intense, but somewhat more balanced. In the first quarter of 2015, Apple was the most successful smartphone vendor in China, with nearly 15 percent of the market share, followed by Xiaomi, with almost 14 percent of the share. Huawei and Lenovo are not far behind, accounting for about 11 percent and just over eight percent respectively.

Next to the smartphone market, Lenovo has a strong presence in the PC industry, as well as in the tablet market. In 2015, Lenovo shipped more PCs than any other vendor, a total of nearly 57 million units over the course of the year.
