Sony attributed the decline in operating profits to a decline in consumer electronics demand due to the Corona virus epidemic. Because of the restrictions imposed on the spread of the virus, the Japanese company was forced to suspend production in some industrial facilities in certain countries.

Sony expects operating income this year to drop 30% to its lowest level in four years. Although the company's gaming activities continue well, image sensor activity may be affected by a sharp drop in demand for high-end mobile phones this year.

Between January 2020 and March 2020, Sony shipped only 400,000 Xperia smartphones. This is the lowest number in the recent past, especially in the first quarter. Deliveries decreased by 64% compared to the same period last year. The biggest decrease in this category.

Although the company's goal is to sell 700,000 smartphones, production has stalled due to weak demand and global epidemics where the goal has not been met. This was the last positive annual growth for the company in the Xperia category in the second quarter of 2017.
