Summarizing the development law of mobile communication technology in the past, we can see that odd-numbered generations such as 1G and 3G usually bring about disruptive changes. Therefore, it can be said that the 5G countries are very strong.
In the end, China, which has been silently following behind, has achieved transcendence and achieved the leap from follower to leader, which is eye-catching.
Recently, the German analysis agency IPLyTIcs released a "2020 Global 5G Core Patent Family Data". From the list, it can be seen that Huawei, a Chinese communication equipment manufacturer, is in the lead, winning the championship with a share of 15.05%.
ZTE's share was 11.7%, surpassing Qualcomm's 8.19%, and successfully ranked fifth in the world. It can be seen that China's communication equipment companies have a very high position in the world.
Under the brilliance of Huawei, ZTE's attention is slightly lower, but in fact, ZTE's strength is also quite strong, which is worthy of attention.
By the end of September 2020, ZTE had won 55 5G commercial orders worldwide, ranking fourth in the world.
In the third quarter of 2020, ZTE's global 5G communication equipment market share was 14.2%, ranking third in the world. According to Li Zixue, chairman of ZTE, in the quarter, ZTE's 5G base station shipments ranked second in the world, accounting for 33% of the market.
From the various achievements of ZTE, it can be seen that its strength is also quite strong and its performance is very excellent.
Today, ZTE has become the world's leading comprehensive communications equipment manufacturer, serving over 25% of the world's population and delivering business to more than 160 countries and regions.
At present, ZTE has three major businesses: consumer business, government and enterprise business, and operator network business. Among them, the operator network business is the most important to ZTE, supporting more than 70% of the company's revenue.
At the same time, ZTE's operator network business development space is also quite large. For China alone, to achieve 5G nationwide coverage, nearly 5 million 5G base stations need to be built. This brings a lot of opportunities to ZTE.
In the operator's 5G wireless bidding in 2020, ZTE and Huawei won more than 86% of the shares, far exceeding 65% in 4G.
In the global market, ZTE has a vast world. It is reported that a total of 46 operators in the world are currently commercializing 5G, and 79 operators have 5G commercial plans. This has given ZTE a huge opportunity for development.
But unfortunately, the United States has frequently attacked Chinese operators, which has hindered the global business of Huawei and ZTE. Some time ago, Sweden also banned its operators from using Huawei and ZTE equipment.
It can be seen that ZTE now faces not only opportunities but also challenges. Next, let us wait and see whether ZTE can go against the current and achieve another success.
