In the smartphone category, Apple reported a 7.8% YoY growth, whereas Xiaomi reported a 18.2% decline in revenue in 2022. Xiaomi’s sales declined due a reduction in global shipments.”

Microsoft, Sony, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (TSMC), Panasonic, Accenture and Qualcomm reported more than 10% YoY growth in their revenue in 2022. TSMC’s revenue increased 33.7% YoY, driven by increased shipments in its high-performance computing and smartphone businesses.

Samsung, Meta, Tencent, Lenovo, Intel, HP, Pegatron, Xiaomi and Compal Electronics were the only companies in the top 25 that reported YoY decline in revenue in 2022.
