Huawei’s rotating Chairman Eric Xu said on 29 November that the firm is on track to hit an annual revenue of over US$100bn in 2018, according to CNBC

In a statement whose translation has been confirmed by CNBC, Xu said: “There is no problem that we can hit the $100 billion mark.”

While Xu did not elaborate on the key drivers behind this enormous figure, the Chinese electronics giant has been rolling out a slew of high-impact technology and devices such as the Huawei Mate P20 smartphone and its continuously growing range of AI and IoT solutions.

Huawei also overtook Apple as the world’s second-largest smartphone manufacturer in July this year, holding 14.6% of the global market in Q3, according to Statista, while Apple holds 13.2%.

In March, South China Morning Post reported that Huawei was eyeing the $100bn target, naming 5G and IoT products as the likely triggers for the jump in revenue.

“Ultimately, we aim to bring digital to every person, home and organisation for a fully connected, intelligent world.”
