So Huawei is a quiet giant. Because the products for end customers make up only a small part of the portfolio, the company is relatively unknown. It has about 150,000 employees , considerably more than, say, the car maker BMW. Even in Germany, a part of which works in Dusseldorf has European headquarters based in Nuremberg and a mobile operations center, in total there are in this country 16 locations with 1,600 employees.

Huawei is successful primarily as a supplier of telecommunications companies.

Overall, Huawei in 2013 made about 40 billion US dollars in sales, about half as much as BMW. 3.5 billion after tax remained as the profit in the company’s treasury. So is return on sales slightly higher than the Bavarian carmaker. Since 2009, the salesincreased by more than 50 percent of the profit, however, has risen significantly weaker. That might be due to numerous investments. 2016, net income was already at 5.3 billion US dollars. So Huawei was able to increase its net profit compared to 2013 by about 50 percent. Sales are now 75.6 billion dollars. Compared to 2015, however, net profit rose only slightly by 0.4 percent. 2016, sales increased in all areas. However, specific figures for individual sectors does not point out the private company, which makes a deeper analysis Huawei heavy.

Although Huawei locations operates around the globe, most of the employees still working in Shenzhen , where the company has its headquarters. The city near Hong Kong is the headquarters of many companies, for example, the company Foxconn, which for Apple is active and other manufacturers as a contract manufacturer. Even in the late 1970s lived in the region around 30,000 people, then Shenzhen was because of its proximity to the former crown colony Hong Kong, a Special Economic Zone, 1990 alone had the actual city of 300,000 inhabitants, today it is as big as Munich, with around 1.3 million inhabitants. Including the surrounding land, which is often the case counts as in the People’s Republic of China to admistrativen city, Shenzhen has even 13 million inhabitants.

The operating margin declined in recent years, something, especially due to a significant increase in sales at slightly increasing profits.


In the summer of 2017 , Huawei has for the first time sold more smartphones than Apple. The company was thus a market share of slightly more like 10 percent, while  Apple sharesbelow 10 percent market share slipped. Undisputed number one is still Samsung, with a market share of around 20 percent. However, the distance of the Korean market leader melts more and more. In early January 2017, the Huawei had proclaimed chief in Las Vegas that he wants to bring the company at No. 2, what he so – has managed – at least in the short term.

Remember, however, Huawei is unlikely to be able to keep on the 2nd place. Especially with the introduction of the iPhone X the direct competitor of the United States could significantly make up ground. What is missing Huawei is also a real bestseller. Although the Chinese sell a lot of smartphones, but no single device can be found in the top 10 of the world’s best-selling smartphones. Therefore, Huawei invested more and more money in establishing the brand. Although Huawei is also known in this country. But when a well known brand , like Apple or Samsung, to be perceived, it has not managed the companyWhat just to see to it that there is no seller. In addition, in the future more money will flow into various distribution channels.
