The first quarter of the 2019 has just ended and Xiaomi is reaping the benefits of hard work, despite the global smartphone market being a bit stagnant. You can learn more by reading this article, while with this new news we tell you about further successes that the company led by Lei Jun is enjoying, this time in the smart speaker sector. The well-known research company Canalys, through its analysis shows us a picture of the current scenario that sees a global growth of + 131,4% year on year.
To drive this growth we find our beloved Xiaomi, which boasts an increase in sales of + 411,4%. A dizzying growth above all if we consider the aspect linked to the language that Xiaomi's smart speakers offer, that is only Chinese. Analyzing the graph posted by Canalys, we can highlight that in the Q1 2018, Xiaomi barely boasted 600000 units while in the Q1 2019 just ended we reach 3,2 million, moving from 7% to 15,5 market share.
Boom in sales of Xiaomi smart speakers
A value that is very close to what the giant Google gets with its Home series smart speakers, while Alexa comes with the Echo range to captain the market. We hope that this data will encourage CEO Lei Jun to develop support for her Xiao AI assistant in other languages, including Italian. Certainly we could see, in this case, a classification overturned and captained by Xiaomi.
We also remember that the IoT market is rapidly expanding and the various gadgets connected to the smart home are the future, on which Xiaomi has been investing a large part of its revenues for some time. Well we can only hope for future updates aimed also at our market. Who knows how he will call Xiaomi his own virtual assistant? Do you have ideas? Imagine, if tomorrow we could say: "EHI MITU, TURN THE LIGHT ON !!!"
