Foreign media: Huawei was sanctioned
Samsung will benefit
According to foreign media analysis, due to US sanctions on Huawei, the global alliance will even shut Huawei out, which will increase Samsung’s market share.
The United Kingdom issued a statement in July prohibiting Huawei from participating in 5G construction and ordered the complete removal of Huawei equipment from its 5G community by 2027, including its desire to introduce new suppliers such as Samsung and Japan’s NEC.
According to CNBC, Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg (Hans Vestberg) did not use any Huawei equipment in July last year. Verizon’s order already belongs to Samsung.
Samsung is the world’s largest manufacturer of memory chips and electronic products. It has been committed to expanding its market share in the 5G equipment market and has invested in 6G mobile networks.
Cape Funding and Securities analyst Park Sung-soon said: “Samsung’s profitable order from Verizon will help the company expand its overseas telecom equipment companies, and it can undoubtedly use leverage to carry out barter trade with different countries. .”
According to data from market analysis agency Dell’, Samsung accounted for 3% of the global complete telecommunications equipment market in 2019, second only to Huawei’s 28%, Nokia 16%, Ericsson 14%, ZTE’s 10% and Cisco 7%.
TSMC cuts supply of Huawei chips next week
Continued to be suppressed, Huawei is facing a situation where there is no core available
On May 15, the US Department of Commerce announced the strengthening of export controls and required TSMC to stop accepting new orders from Huawei. Orders that have been accepted will be shipped before September 15, and orders after that will need to be approved by the US when exporting.
In 2019, Huawei is the second largest customer of TSMC after Apple, but after September 14, the world’s largest foundry will not be allowed to continue shipping to Huawei. There are reports that TSMC’s production line is operating 24 hours a day, hoping that Huawei will produce as many chips as possible. Even so, Huawei chips are not enough.
On August 7, Yu Chengdong, CEO of China and Huawei’s consumer business, said that due to the second round of US sanctions, the production of chips will end after September 15. This year may be the last generation of Kirin’s high-end chips, out of print. Due to the lack of chip supply, shipments of mobile phones are expected to further decrease this year. “Our mobile phone business is now very difficult, chip supply is difficult, and it is out of stock.”
Then, on August 17, the United States continued to escalate its suppression of Huawei. The U.S. Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) announced a new “upgraded” Huawei ban on the evening of the same day. The core of this ban is that a complete blockade of Huawei’s procurement of chips from third parties is tantamount to unplugging Huawei’s “respirator” that Huawei barely survives. This trick is both ruthless and absolute.
The United States is even more provocative to say that the ultimate goal of this ban is to “prevent Huawei from obtaining chips of the same level as the United States,” and stated the ultimate goal unabashedly.
After this upgrade, unless there is a special license, any chips developed and produced based on American software or technology will not be available to Huawei.
In other words, even the chips designed by MediaTek and Qualcomm are not allowed to be shipped to Huawei.
According to the latest news on August 29, the United States continues to upgrade its blockade of Huawei’s chip supply. As for how Huawei will deal with the problem, Huawei’s consumer business CEO Yu Chengdong said, “We are thinking of a way.”
On September 7th, according to a report from Taiwanese media Digitimes, due to the increasing pressure from the outside world, this has also affected its other business units except chips and smartphones. Huawei has reduced its orders for parts and components used in TV production by 30%. -40%.
According to the report, if the supply of semiconductor chips cannot be resolved, Huawei’s TV business will still face uncertainty in 2021.
