China's Digital Silk Road, Huawei, and the Entity List Study 2023

Dublin, Nov. 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "China's Digital Silk Road, Huawei, and the Entity List" report has been added to's offering.

This brief addresses the enduring power of Huawei in the market for telecommunications network infrastructure (Telco NI).

Per the publisher's latest Telco NI vendor share report, Huawei retains over 17% of this market globally, far ahead of the next two rivals, Ericsson and Nokia. Huawei's top spot is only slightly down from the ~20% share it recorded in 2017-19.

Yet starting 2019, Huawei was hit with strict limits on its ability to buy US-dependent technology (i.e. the entity list restrictions) and key customers in Europe, Asia and the Americas began taking more seriously the political and security risks of dependence on a Chinese vendor.

Back in 2019-20, it was clear that Huawei stockpiled some inventory to help survive the early months of the entity list rules. That was only a stopgap solution, though. Moreover, Chinese government actions since 2019 have raised more concerns about the relationship with Huawei, rather than resolving doubts.

How has Huawei managed to keep its leading position in Telco NI despite all of these new obstacles? And what are the implications for Huawei's prospects in the next few years in this market?
