Last November, a key supplier of key Apple watches gained record revenue, up more than 20% year on year. This growth is attributed to Apple's increasing demand for component orders for Apple Watch Series 3.
Industry sources say Taiwan's supply chain Department expects the number of orders for Apple Watch Series 3 lines to reach 2300-3500 million next year.
The report was released by DIGITIMES.
The company is responsible for packaging and testing radio frequency, Wi-Fi and MEMS chips for iPhone and Apple Watch devices, and expects to achieve a record quarter revenue in the fourth quarter of 2017, according to people familiar with the matter.
Apple Watch 3 is becoming more and more popular in the consumer electronics market, and it also integrates a series of functions such as fitness training and personal health testing. The analysis shows that by 2018, the total shipment volume will reach a 25 million high.
As usual, the supply chain report needs to be treated with caution, because the supplier is predicted based on limited information on, they only know their orders without knowing other suppliers, know the specific number of orders only departments of Apple Corp.
According to last month's report, Fuji Yasuko Shun Xin Technology will join Apple's SiP supply list, but the latest report shows that apple is more likely to achieve this goal in 2019 as apple seeks to diversify its supply.
Apple Watch Series 3 has been selected as one of the ten largest electronic products selected by time magazine this year, and apple has recently publicized it as a holiday gift through 4 new advertisements. Apple will continue to enhance the function of the watch by adding Apple Pay and health applications.
