China is big and not strong. This sentence is half correct. Indeed, China has a very large manufacturing output, and its operating income is very high, but its output value and profits are very low. This is a fact.
In the first quarter of 2017, the share of Chinese branded mobile phones accounted for 48% of the world’s total, which means that every time a human buys two mobile phones, one of them is a Chinese brand. However, if the value of production and profits, China’s mobile phone can account for less than 48%.
Apple sold 215 million Iphones in 2016, accounting for 14.6% of the world; China’s top three Huawei +OPPO+VIVO sold 315.7 million mobile phones in 2016, accounting for 21.6% of the world; Samsung sold 311 million mobile phones in 2016, accounting for 21.2% of the world.
However, in comparison to revenue, Apple’s revenue from Iphones was US$1,394 billion in 2016; Samsung’s mobile division’s revenue was US$89.4 billion. Huawei’s +OPPO+VIVOs did not disclose the revenue of individual mobile phones. Huawei’s revenue from consumer services For 178 billion yuan, even if it counts as mobile phone revenue, which is 25.8 billion US dollars (6.9 exchange rate), OPPO and VIVO’s revenue is also about 20 billion US dollars (estimated, VIVO is lower than the OPPO), then the three The sum is also 65 billion U.S. dollars.
It can be seen that the amount is larger than others, income is lower than others, and income is higher than that. Output value and profit are even better than this. This can be called big but not strong.
However, as a national of the world’s largest industrial country, we must correctly understand the word “big but not strong”: China is a country of the entire industry chain, and big but not strong is compared with the world’s strongest in this industry.
A smart phone is an example. We say that big and not strong is compared with the United States and South Korea, which are the strongest in the industry. But compared to other countries, we are both big and strong. No other country can surpass us in terms of output value and profit. We are The third strongest in the world.
