Taiwan handset shipments expand mildly in 3Q18, says Digitimes Research Luke Lin, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei
Shipments of handsets by Taiwan's brand vendors and ODMs expanded by a moderate 5.5% on quarter to 21.8 million units in the third quarter of 2018 as increased shipments of ODM models were offset by decreased shipments from brand vendors, according to data compiled by Digitimes Research.
The Foxconn Group ranked the top supplier among brand vendors and ODMs, buoyed by orders for both smartphones and feature phones from HMD Global (Nokia).
Brand vendor Asustek took second place, while Compal Electronics outraced HTC to become third, tha nks to a rebound in orders from Sony Mobile Communications. Arima Communication ranked fifth as its ODM orders continued dwindling.
Looking ahead, Taiwan's handset shipments are expected to record a double-digit increase sequentially in the fourth quarter, propelled by a further ramp-up of orders from HMD Global and a rebound in shipments from Asustek, Digitimes Research estimates.Source: Google News Taiwan | Netizen 24 Taiwan
