In case you missed it, Huawei's revenue in 2018 grew by about 20% to CNY 721 (~USD 104 billion). However, the company said that their sales revenue will be just about USD 100 billion this year and in 2020 . In short, its former forecast drops by about USD 30 billion.

“In the next two years, I think we will reduce our capacity, our revenue will be down by about USD 30 billion compared to the forecast, so our sales revenue this year and next year will be about USD 100 billion,” Ren Zhengfei, founder and CEO, addressed at Huawei’s headquarters in Shenzhen.

Also, the company revealed that overseas smartphone unit sales have dropped by 40% between May 17 and June 16, compared to the month to May 16 -- the day when Trump blocked US companies from selling its technology to Huawei.

Some experts also predicted that the Chinese tech giant will struggle staying ahead of Apple. However, IDC Analyst Kiranjeet Kaur claimed that Huawei might still be able to maintain its position as the second biggest mobile vendor this year.

“We also didn’t foresee that the US would strategically attack us on so many fronts,” Zhengfei noted.

Though the company admitted that it underestimated the U.S. ban's impact, Huawei is still confident that they can survive this rocky road and might boost its sales once again in a couple of years.

What can you say? Do you think Huawei can bounce back?
