IT House News on June 21. According to TheELEC, Samsung distributor's smartphone inventory is as high as 50 million units. Sources said that a large part of the Galaxy A series mobile phone is located.
The report quoted sources as saying that Samsung's goal this year is to ship about 270 million smartphones, and 50 million units account for 18%of them. This ratio is not too healthy. % Of inventory indicates that Samsung is affected by the low demand of smartphones.
It is reported that in January and February this year, Samsung produced about 20 million smartphones per month. However, the output of the company's smartphone in May fell to 10 million units, which may be due to excessive inventory and downturn.
In the fourth quarter of last year, Samsung set an ambitious annual production target for 2022, about 334 million units. This means that in terms of shipments, the goal will be about 300 million units. However, the demand for smartphones this year is lower than expected, so Samsung has reduced its supplier's components by 30%to 70%in April and May.
IT House learned that earlier this month reported that Nikkei News reported that Samsung temporarily stopped new procurement orders due to concerns about high inventory and global inflation, and required multiple suppliers to postpone or reduce the delivery of parts for several weeks.
