Brands of Mobile Phone Shipments in China
With the rapid development of China's mobile communication operation industry, as one of the biggest global mobile phone manufacturing base, Chinese mobile phone industry continued to expand. China Electronic Information Industry Development Institute expects that 2013 to 2015 would be the peak of the new generation of smart phones. Total sales during the three years would reach 2 trillion yuan, China's smart phone market sales will continue to maintain high growth. Meanwhile, the domestic smart phone innovation capacity needs to be improved, there is still a wide gap between the well-known international companies in phone profitability. China's smart phone business is promising, but still a long way to go.
Foreign Companies and Operators
The role of being one of the biggest global mobile phone manufacturing base decides that many foreign brand companies or operators across the world would like to find a Chinese cell phone OEM/ODM manufacturer to produce their smart phones. For example, Foxconn, which is the largest OEM manufacturer of Apple's mobile products, including iPhone and iPad, also act as an ODM (Original Design Manufacturer) for multinational companies like Sony, Xiaomi, BlackBerry, Huawei and Lenovo. Actually, besides these well-known top mobile phone brands and companies, many operators also cooperate with Chinese OEM factories to manufacture their mobile phone, such as Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, and Movistar, and so on.
