488

Huawei Technologies, the renowned Chinese tech giant, anticipates a robust financial year ahead, expecting a substantial revenue surpassing 700 billion yuan ($98.5 billion) for 2023. 

This optimistic projection, shared by rotating chairman Ken Hu in a confidential New Year message, marks a remarkable 9% increase in revenue compared to the figures reported in 2022, which stood at 642.3 billion yuan.

The forecast underscores Huawei’s resilient rebound from the adverse impacts of US sanctions that severely affected its operations starting in 2019. 

Huawei’s business lines suffered greatly as a result of these sanctions, which severely restricted its access to vital international technologies, including cutting off its supply of cutting-edge semiconductors.

Expressing gratitude to their partners for unwavering support during challenging times, Hu lauded the collective efforts of the Huawei team, acknowledging their unwavering commitment and perseverance. After years of hard work, we’ve managed to weather the storm. And now we’re pretty much back on track, Hu affirmed.

Notably, Huawei’s device business segment, encompassing its smartphone division, outperformed expectations in 2023.

The launch of the Mate60 series in August, believed to be empowered by a domestically developed chipset, symbolized Huawei’s re-entry into the high-end smartphone market, marking a significant milestone after grappling with the repercussions of US sanctions for years.

In October, Huawei witnessed an impressive 83% surge in smartphone shipments year-on-year, contributing to an 11% growth in the overall Chinese smartphone market, according to Counterpoint.

Looking forward to 2024, Huawei emphasized its commitment to further bolstering its device business, intending to double down on developing top-notch products and fostering a premium brand with a personalized touch.

However, acknowledging the existing challenges, Hu highlighted geopolitical uncertainties, economic fluctuations, and persisting technology restrictions and trade barriers. 

To address these obstacles, Huawei plans to concentrate on enhancing business operations’ efficiency by streamlining headquarters, simplifying management processes, and maintaining consistent policies while making necessary adjustments.

Huawei’s positive revenue forecast and strategic focus indicate a determined resurgence, positioning the company on a trajectory of recovery and growth despite the persisting challenges in the global landscape.
