Digitimes Research: Taiwan handset shipments drop over 10% sequentially in 3Q15
Luke Lin, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Tuesday 20 October 2015]

Combined smartphone shipments by Taiwan-based handset brands and ODMs declined by more than 10% sequentially to 19.54 million units in the third quarter of 2015, according to an estimate by Digitimes Research.

Among brand vendors, only Asustek Computer managed to ramp up its shipments in the third quarter, while HTC and Acer both suffered sequential shipment declines in the quarter.

ODM Arima Communications posted sequential shipment growth in the third quarter but other ODMs including Compal Electronics, the Foxconn Group and Wistron all saw their shipments decline during the period, said Digitimes Research.

ODM orders from LG Electronics, TCL and Micromax were not strong enough to make up for decreased orders from Sony Mobile Communications and Microsoft Mobile, which affected the performance of ODMs in the third quarter, Digitimes Research commented.

In terms of shipment volume, Compal ranked as the largest handset shipper in the quarter, while Asustek took the second position, powered by strong shipments of its ZenFone series.
