Huawei Technologies and ZTE Corp, won an 88 percent share of China Mobile’s 3G bid, which has a total value of more than 8.6 billion yuan.

Analysts said the Chinese firms led China Mobile’s TD-SCDMA equipment market because they invested heavily in the home-grown technology and penetrated the market early.

In the third-phase TD-SCDMA network covering 200 cities, ZTE, Huawei and Datang Mobile gained a total market share of 72 percent. The domestic firms New Postcom, FiberHome, and Potevio combined for a 16 percent share. Overseas firms Nokia Siemens Networks and Ericsson Inc split the remaining 12 percent.

Sandian said in a report “The home-grown firms took a dominant position and it will not change in a short period. ZTE gained a 34 percent share, Huawei gained a 22 percent share and Datang Mobile gained a 16 percent share. The remaining five companies each gained a market share of either 5 or 6 percent. China Mobile launched its third-phase TD-SCDMA network tender covering 200 Chinese cities in March. The actual scale of this third-phase tender was larger than originally planned and the value was bigger than expected.”

China issued 3G licenses in January to three carriers including China Mobile. The country will invest 400 billion yuan on 3G within three years, according to the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.
