Huawei's Western European turnover exceeds 2 billion dollars

Huawei has announced its Consumer Business Group division will generate more than 2 billion dollars (1.8 billion euro) in turnover in Western Europe in 2015. That is not surprising as turnover has grown 45 % in Western Europe.

Growing brand familiarity

"This success is mainly based on our new business strategy that focuses on three areas: Firstly, we have extended our offering in the mid and high-end smartphone segment and have received very positive feedback from consumers on our flagship products such P8 and Mate S. Secondly, we have intensified our co-operation with key operators and channel partners to create a win-win collaboration for each party involved. And, last but not least, we have extended and improved the retail in-store experience for end-consumers", Richard Ren (Huawei Western Europe Consumer Business Group CEO) said.


Improved sales were also helped by Huawei's improved brand familiarity in Western Europe. Research from the company itself has shown that about 64 % of Western European consumers know the brand, up 30 % compared to the year before.
