FY 2015 to see Sony ship 38 million smartphones

smartphone  shipments by Sony this year to exceed 38million
Sony Mobile Communications aims to ship 38 million smartphones in fiscal 2015 (April 2015-March 2016), down slightly from 39.2 million units shipped in the previous fiscal year, according to sources at Taiwan's handset supply chain. 

 The lower shipment target comes as the Japan-based vendor is still overhauling its handset business and has also shifted its focus to the mid-range to high-end segment, said the sources. Despite the absence of new orders from Sony Mobile since the fourth quarter of 2014, Taiwan's ODMs have begun shipping some new models to the Japan-based vendor recently, including the Xperia E4 from Arima Communications, Xperia E4g from Compal Electronics and Xperia M4 Aqua from Foxconn/FIH Mobile.

Sony Corp Products that Give the Most Revenue

Acording to  recent a data chart by Splatf Sony’s consumer electronics business — led by TVs, videogames, and computers — still generates about half of the company’s sales.




But Sony’s profits these days come from what may seem like an unexpected source: Its financial services business, which includes life insurance, non-life insurance, and banking. (At least before the rest of Sony wipes those profits out — overall, the company expects to lose more than $1 billion this fiscal year of 2012.)


 
During six of the past nine quarters, Sony’s financial services business has generated more operating income than any other segment. (Though last quarter wasn’t particularly good, because of poor investment performance at Sony Life. See earnings PDF for details.) Meanwhile, the consumer electronics business has been a money loser over that period.

The Sony Story of Declining Marketshare and Revenue

Kazuo Hirai, chief executive of Sony, has conceded the consumer electronics company is being forced by limited resources to be “very selective” about the smartphones it offers in the US, as it faces “a big task” in challenging dominant rivals Apple and Samsung
Meanwhile in its country of origin Sony shares fell as much as 6.7% to 1,132 yen on the Tokyo Stock Exchang during April 2012. Its TV business, one of its biggest growth drivers in the past, has been hit hard by increased competition and falling prices. The division has been making losses for eight years in a row.
The company has also lost ground to rivals in the gaming and mobile phone business
Sony has been making a loss for each of the past four years, has forecast that it will return to profit in the current financial year of 2012 Sony The firm, which has been making a loss for each of the past four years, has forecast that it will return to profit in the current financial year.

The Sony Story: Failing to Reinvent itself ,Sony inching towards Disaster

ReadWriteWeb DeathWatch: Sony

But the biggest devastation has come in TVs. While Sony packed its spendy sets with features like Google TV, Samsung made a less expensive, more reliable product that still included the things (like Netflix and Pandora) that customers really wanted. Earlier this year, Sony admitted defeat, hacking its ambitious plan to produce 40 million TV sets per year by 50%"

Game publishing looks no better, with the once-mightySony Online Entertainment now best-known for being part of a 2011 hack that compromised millions of accounts.




Sony has posted losses for four consecutive years, and the company has lost its leadership position in just about every market it used to dominate. A recent post by Readwriteweb  under " Deathwatch" which is a explains why Sony is headed downhill and  why is on its way" towards oblivion

Sony's Products Fail To Enthuse ': New Generation

The creator of the Walkman along with  The CD, The CD Walkman,along with the Trinitron TV, Blu-Ray discs, the PlayStation and dozens of other consumer electronics devices  Sony has churning out consumer electronics for  over for 50 years .However over the last few years, others have captured Sony’s traditional markets, while very little Sony innovation has made an impact. The result is a bloated workforce, unsold inventory and a stock that’s down more than 90% from its all-time high in 2000.

The Problems

Sony lacks focus. Consumer electronics used to be Sony’s cash cow, but now it’s more of an expensive hobby. Sony’s VAIO line of PCs no longer commands a premium. Improving phone cameras have eroded point-and-shoot camera sales, and Sony’s SLRs have barely dented the market.t.Improving phone cameras have eroded point-and-shoot camera segment 
Sony Loses its Smartphones Battles

Phones are still a growth business, but Sony is late to the game. Its newest Xperia Android smartphones are solid middle-of-the-pack contenders, while Samsung and HTC are worlds ahead in features and carrier relationships. Unless Sony can create meaningful tie-ins with its gaming or entertainment properties, purchasers will consider Sony handsets only when the price is right.
