China’s Smartphone Market Prepares for Reshuffling as Latest Sanctions Against Huawei Take Effect on September 15, Says TrendForce

21 September 2020

Based on sanctions imposed on Huawei by the U.S. Bureau of Industry and Security on August 17, semiconductor components containing U.S.-originated technologies or software from September 15 onward can no longer be shipped to Huawei without permission from the U.S. Department of Commerce. TrendForce indicates that Huawei has been amassing a strategic reserve of components from U.S. suppliers since 2019 in hopes of lessening the impact of the tightening trade restrictions on its device production later on. According to TrendForce’s latest analysis, Huawei’s annual smartphone production for 2020 will still reach around 170 million units. This figure is a downward correction of about 10% compared with the earlier projection of 190 million units (based on the series of export control rules levied against the company on May 15). Later revisions to the brand’s annual production volume will depend on the sufficiency status of materials.
