  • Apple's China sugar rush | Business Spectator
    s long awaited iPhone agreement with China Mobile Ltd may deliver little more than a fleeting revenue jolt for the US giant A deal with the world s largest mobile carrier expected as early as this week nets Apple 759 million potential new customers that could generate US3 billion in 2014 revenue or nearly one quarter of Apple s projected revenue growth in its current fiscal year But after the initial haul Apple will find itself in a familiar expensive battle with its main smartphone rival South Korea s Samsung Electronics Co Ltd to win over customers one wallet at a time And China Mobile will likely have to wait at least a year for its payout as it spends billions of dollars to build a 4G network so customers can make full use of their iPhones The easiest way to grow iPhone sales was always distribution This was the pot at the end of the rainbow and now that we re there it s going to be an old fashioned slog it out over customers said Ben Thompson a Taipei based writer on the technology industry at stratechery com China is Apple s second largest market after the United States Net sales in China for the fiscal year ended September 2013 rose 13 per cent to US25 4 billion accounting for about 15 per cent of Apple s US170 9 billion in total net sales But its performance has been mixed Where once there were lines around the block for the newest iPhone now Apple faces intense competition from Samsung plus a host of local players such as Xiaomi making cheaper smartphones China Mobile which says it already has 45 million iPhone users could gain 17 million new activations and the deal should generate at least 3 billion in revenue for Apple in 2014 according to Forrester Research Analysts expect Apple s revenue to increase by US13 2 billion in its fiscal year ending September 2014 according to Thomson Reuters I B E S Apple declined to comment on its negotiations with China Mobile China Mobile spokeswoman Rainie Lei said talks were ongoing and declined to elaborate After the gold rush The last of the big name carrier signings marks a shift in the smartphone battle once availability is no longer an issue marketing becomes the deciding factor Samsung has the spending edge The South Korean titan is expected to spend around US14 billion on advertising and marketing this year Samsung spends a bigger chunk of its annual revenue on advertising and promotion than any of the world s top 20 companies by sales 5 4 per cent according to Thomson Reuters data Apple spends just 0 6 per cent Apple is definitely going to have to increase marketing spend said Bryan Wang a Beijing based analyst with Forrester Research Apple is going to gain revenues from China through the upcoming China Mobile agreement But its next question will be how to further compete with competitors after the first
