Canalys: the first small volume shipment in China in the first half of 2020

Recently, canalys, a well-known international data research organization, released the shipment data of smart speakers in the first half of 2020, which shows that the global shipment of smart speakers is 48 million. Baidu’s AI hardware brand Xiaodu’s shipment performance in the first half of the year is still brilliant, Q2 and the first half of 2020’s total shipment volume ranks first in China, indicating that Xiaodu’s cumulative shipment volume has ranked first in China since 2019; In the field of smart speaker with screen, the single quarter shipment volume of small smart screen in 2020 and the total shipment volume in the first half of the year continue to rank the first in the world, and the cumulative shipment volume of small smart screen in history ranks first in the world. It has won a number of No.1 Xiaodu, showing its strong leading ability in the field of smart speakers with the posture of king, leading the domestic and even global smart speaker brands to roll forward. < / P > < p > according to the latest data released by canalys, there are two major trends in the smart speaker market since 2019. On the one hand, in China, the “oligopoly effect” led by Xiaodu is becoming more and more obvious. The data shows that the growth rate of Xiaodu in the second quarter of 2020 is 33.3%, the first in China, and Xiaodu shows a strong growth momentum with its forward-looking strategic layout in smart speakers; However, the growth rate of Q2 shipment volume of tmall Genie and Xiaoai was 13.5% and 1.2% respectively, which further expanded the advantages compared with other two brands. < / P > < p > on the other hand, under the leadership of a small degree, the domestic smart speaker brand’s shipment is close to that of Amazon and Google. In the first half of 2020, Xiaodu smart speakers will ship 8.63 million units, compared with 8.8 million units from Google. According to this trend, Xiaodu is expected to become the second largest smart speaker brand in the world for a long time in the second half of 2020, and will “fight the top of the forbidden zone” with Amazon. Small scale in the smart speaker market is irresistible with its advanced layout in the field of smart screen. According to the data, in the first half of 2020, the number of intelligent speakers with screens was 5.6 million in the world, accounting for 41% of the total number of intelligent speakers with screens in the world, and the historical cumulative shipment of smart speakers with screens also ranked first in the world. < / P > < p > before, the screen less smart speakers had simple functions and limited imagination space, so the major smart speaker brands could only compete for users in limited use scenarios. Xiaodu is the first to launch intelligent speaker with screen in China, and has released the world’s first smart screen product, Xiaodu intelligent screen X8, to realize the sound and visualization of information, open more possibilities of smart speaker, and show the undervalued value of smart speaker industry. After the emergence of the new species of smart screen, the use scenarios of smart speakers have been continuously expanded, giving new value to smart speakers, and taking the smart speaker track to a new height. < / P > < p > in addition to the small degree, the domestic and international smart speaker brands on the list are obviously not ready for the new track competition with “smart screen” as the core. According to canalys data, in the first half of the year, the shipment of small screen smart speakers accounted for 65% of its total shipment, while Amazon, the world’s second largest exporter of smart speakers, accounted for 26%. However, tmall genie, which has been increasing its investment in smart speakers since this year, accounts for only 18%, which is lower than 21% of Xiaomi. < / P > < p > when the domestic and foreign markets focus on the development of non screen smart speakers, Xiaodu takes the lead in opening the playing method of intelligent speakers with screens in China. Through the smart screen, the game rules of smart speakers are re formulated, breaking the development restrictions of non screen smart speakers and opening a new era of smart speakers. The development idea of smart speaker industry based on smart screen is a forward-looking thinking beyond many domestic and international smart speaker brands, which has left international and domestic competitors behind strategically.
