“Heavy marketing campaigns and lucrative sales promoter incentives enables these brands to strengthen their mindshare in the local market, increase their shipments, and grow their respective market shares. The assault of these brands affected the sales of some of the players, resulting in them reducing their supplies, which ultimately impacted overall smartphone shipments,” Jensen Ooi, Senior Market Analyst, Client Devices, IDC ASEAN.
