“I would bet that, in three years, we will be number 3 worldwide,” stated the Lenovo executive. He emphasized once again the company’s intention to expand its market share geographically.

Challenges in a Dominated Market

Entering the top echelons of the global market won’t be an easy feat for Motorola, as Apple and Samsung collectively hold almost 40% of the smartphone market share. Xiaomi, currently in 3rd place, commands over 12% of the market. According to Counterpoint data, Motorola and Lenovo jointly occupied the 8th position in the third quarter of 2024.

Interestingly, Motorola already enjoys significant popularity in selected markets, particularly in Latin America, where it stands as the second-largest manufacturer. The brand is estimated to hold the same position in Brazil, trailing only behind Samsung but maintaining a fierce competition with Apple.

Future Prospects and Regional Strength

Zielinski did not outline a broader strategy during the interview, but given the short-term nature of the goal, consumers can expect to see the effects of Lenovo’s future investments in Motorola sooner rather than later. As the brand aims to climb the global smartphone ranking, it will be intriguing to observe how these strategic moves play out in various markets worldwide
