Vietnam smartphone market share in 2021. Figure: IDC

According to the latest report from market research company IDC, in the fourth quarter of 2021, Samsung is currently the leading phone manufacturer in Vietnam with 28.7% market share. One of the reasons contributing to Samsung’s sales success comes from the strong growth of low-cost smartphone devices.

In second place in terms of mobile market share in Vietnam is Oppo with 17.3% market share. Vivo ranked in third place with 16.1% market share in Vietnam. The next positions belong to Apple and Xiaomi, respectively (with 10.6% market share).

In the last months of 2021, the purchase of new mobile devices by Vietnamese users increases when demand is pent-up due to the impact of the epidemic. This has helped retailers and mobile device manufacturers recover sales after an extended period of time.

Currently, 4G smartphones are the main growth driver when the import restriction for mobile devices that only support 2G and 3G networks comes into effect from July 1, 2021.

Currently, Apple only accounts for about 10.6% of the mobile market share in Vietnam.

Experts at IDC have predicted that the growth rate of Vietnam’s mobile market will be the highest in ASEAN in 2022. The reason is due to the rapid increase in demand for smartphones, in addition to the transition from 2G/3G phones to models that support 4G/5G networks.

Compared with other countries in the ASEAN region, Vietnam’s mobile market is considered to be quite different. The reason is that the domestic mobile market is currently dominated by large mobile retail chains.

In addition to outstanding customer service, large mobile retailers in Vietnam often gain a competitive advantage by partnering with mobile manufacturers to launch exclusive shopping programs. This is a barrier preventing competition from small distribution units.
