Apple in the smartphone market in Hong Kong

   Apple has been the smartphone market leader in Hong Kong for years, maintaining a market share of well over 40 percent. Whenever new iPhone models were launched, there was almost always a boost in sales. For example, iPhone XR’s launch was the reason for Apple’s peak market share at 60 percent in November 2018. This is particularly interesting in comparison to the neighboring Chinese market which was led by multiple Chinese smartphone manufacturers like Huawei, Oppo and Vivo. Back in 2014, Apple held a market share of roughly the same as Xiaomi, and higher than any other Chinese counterparts.
