Top 5 Mobile Phone Manufacturers: Revenues vs Profitability



Add caption

Apple reached 75% of profit share, nearly 40% of revenue share and 9% of units share.With only a small unit market share, Apple has managed to achieve its remarkable profits by focusing on the high-priced and rapidly-growing smartphone market while doing so at significant profit margins. That 4% unit share consequently translates to over 20% of industry revenue and just over 50% of industry profits. 
Apple and Samsung combined for about 91% of profits with RIM third at 3.7%, HTC fourth at 3.0% and Nokia last at 1.8% of a $15 billion total for the quarter.
In terms of revenues, Apple had 39% to Samsung’s 25%. Third was Nokia with 12.6% and fourth RIM at 8%. HTC only managed 5.5%, Motorola 4%, LG 3.3% and Sony Ericsson 2.7%
Operating Profit: The money earned from a company's core business operations before earning interest or paying tax. It's simply the revenue minus the expenses.
Operating Margin: A ratio of the operating profit to the net revenue. It shows how efficient a company is in turning revenue into profit, and is measured before interest is earned or taxes are paid. If a company's operating margin is 41%, it means they profit $0.41 on every $1.00 of sales.

Apple's China Story Falls Apart,as the iPhone gets knocked from No 1 to No 5




Source: StatCounter Global Stats - Mobile Vendor (Beta) Market Share

While Apple became the world's largest smartphone vendor late last year, with a market share rise from 15.8% a year earlier to 23.8%, it slipped to fifth place in China, according to report released Wednesday by research firm Gartner.
As Chinese firms gradually shift toward the higher end of the market, Apple fell to fifth place in the country and was overtaken by domestic low-end smartphone maker ZTE. Apple's share of the Chinese smartphone market slid to 7.5%, from 10.4% for the July-September period of last year.
 "Chinese handset makers  have been have been actively promoting their smartphones with China's three telecoms operators, and local vendors like  ZTE and Huawei  stood to gain gain significant market share. Samsung replaced  Nokia with 24.3 per cent of the market, more than three times Apple's share. Nokia's market share more than halved last year, from above 40 % in  first quarter to below one fifth by the fourth quarter 2011. Gartner attributed ZTE's considerable success — 71 percent growth sequentially — to strong consumer interest in low-cost smartphones.
In the first quarter of last year, ZTE had a market share of just 3 percent, but ended 2011 ranked 4th with more than 11 percent market share.
