Samsung boosted both global smartphone sales and market share in the first half of the year despite declining demand and runaway inflation.
The company’s global market share increased by 2.5 percentage points year-on-year to 22.6% in the first six months.
While the market is expected to shrink to 1.3 billion units this year, Samsung’s market share rose, led by premium devices such as the Galaxy S and Z series and the mid-range Galaxy A.
In the profit-earning DRAM chip market, Samsung accounted for 43.5% in the first half, up slightly from 42.9% a year earlier. The chip business was impacted by declining demand for computers and smartphones, but was supported by strong demand for server memory chips.
However, in the global TV market, Samsung’s share fell to 31.6% from 32.7% a year earlier.
