Chinese tablet manufacturers report record growth – highest figure since 201423. December 2020
Shipments from Chinese tablet manufacturers reached a new record high of 6.9 million devices in the third quarter. Compared to the previous year, the growth was 21.7 percent, representing the highest figure since 2014. This is according to figures from market analysts International Data Corporation. Because of strong demand due to the Covid 19 pandemic, many devices were sold out at dealers in the third quarter. The pandemic and a lockdown imposed in many regions led to a boom in distance learning and home entertainment.
Chinese tech giant Huawei remains in the top spot with 37 percent market share and shipments of 2.6 million devices in the third quarter. Apple follows in second place with 2.59 million devices, while Lenovo and Microsoft occupy the other ranks with shipments of 320,000 and 170,000 devices, respectively. In terms of the market share of the operating system used, Apple’s iOS is slightly ahead of Android with 58.73 percent and 41.16 percent respectively, while Windows is far behind with only 0.08 percent.
Tablets are subject to CCC certification in China. CCC stands for China Compulsory Certificate. The CCC certificate was introduced in 2002 and applies to both imported and Chinese products. Products requiring certification may only be imported into China, sold in China and used in business activities in China after the product has undergone CCC certification.
For more information on how CCC certification, the CCC Self-Declaration and voluntary CCAP or CQC certification may affect your company, or for more information about CCC certification in general, the process, and the associated costs, please visit our website and our News Section where you will find current updates twice a week.
