NAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 15 – Samsung and Huawei account for 39.9% of the tablet market by stock value in Kenya.

The second half of the year 2016 demonstrated a clear preference of electronic dealers in Kenya for Samsung tablets against Huawei, despite a close competition during the first half.

When we look at the middle market, Sh10-20k price segment, the Huawei market share triple at 24.4%, compared to the 7.2% in the overall market.

On the Kenyan consumer demand side, it was a close battle between the two brands with Samsung emerging at the top on the overall market. However, in the SH10-20k price segment, Huawei has more brand popularity than Samsung.

The key lesson is that Samsung does well across all segments whereas Kenyans opt for Huawei in the middle market (e.g. price segment Sh10-20k).
