Taiwan Smartphone Shipment Volume to Grow 10.6% Sequentially in Q3 2016, States MIC in Its Report Available at MarketPublishers.com20 Oct 2016 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – In Q2 2016, the smartphone shipments in Taiwan amounted to 78.2 million units, down 9.2% successively, owing to the seasonality pertaining to iPhone sales. Though EMS firms accepted more orders from LeEco and Huawei, the growth is unlikely to make up for the drop in iPhone shipments. The shipments of the new iPhone in 2016 are not projected to be strong. The specifications of the iPhone 7/7 Plus comprise increased battery life, moisture resistance, optical image stabilisation (OIS) on the 4.7-inch iPhone, removal of the 3.5mm headset jack, and dual-lens on the 5.5-inch iPhone. Many other specifications have been available on Android phones over a number of years. Hence, the users of iPhone 6/6 Plus are expected to wait another year for the incoming iPhone in 2017.
In Q3 2016, the smartphone shipment volume in Taiwan is projected to expand around 10.6% sequentially, due to the large-scale production of iPhone 7/7 Plus and products of the Taiwanese vendors.
