This is huge – Tecno parent company, China-based Transsion Holdings, now commands 48.7% market share in Africa. Transsion’s mobile phone business in Africa is bigger than either of Apple iPhone or Samsung Galaxy. Transsion is hitting IPO in Shanghai StarBoard which has been modelled after tech-heavy NASDAQ of United States. It plans to raise about $423 million. It shipped close to 95 million mobile phones to Africa in 2018.

Transsion, known as the “King of Africa” on the continent, according to the filing recently, has overtaken Samsung Electronics Co. and Apple Inc. as the largest mobile phone maker there, tapping into a huge and fast-growing market.

Since founding the Tecno Mobile brand in 2006, founder Zhu Zhaojiang has overseen an expansion that now claims a 48.7% market share in Africa, according to the filing. Transsion shipped 94.44 million mobile phones to Africa in 2018, out of a total of 124 million global shipments.

The company plans to issue as many as 80 million A-shares in the IPO and will set the price on Sept. 17. Proceeds will be used to pay for mobile phone manufacturing base projects and research and development, the filing said.

When Tecno came, it began from 0% market share. But by listening to local customer needs and delivering frugal innovation – great value for money – this firm has become a category-king smartphone market leader in Africa. The message is simple: nothing is set even when Apple or Samsung is involved. Yes, if you innovate, customers will converge irrespective of your initial brand positioning because brand positioning is a product of product validation. Bloomberg has called Tecno the “King of Africa” because when it comes to shipping smartphones, Tecno parent firm, Transsion, is the king today. And the company continues to innovate with the launch of its Techno Camon 12, recently.
