Flexible PCB Makers Plagued by Lackluster iPhone Sales


Reading time ( words)

Among supply chain partners for iPhones, Taiwan's PCB makers have suffered significantly from the devices' latest wave of lackluster sales, with flexible board suppliers Zhen Ding Tech, Flexium Interconnect and Career Technology bracing for more negative impacts in 2019 as their revenues have already seen notable downturns since November 2018, according to a Digitimes report.

iPhone main board suppliers including Compeq Manufacturing, Unimicron and Kinsus Interconnect Technology, as well as makers of PCBs for non-handset Apple devices such as Tripod Technology and Unitech PCB may be less affected in the year due partly to lower ratios of revenues contributed by new iPhones, Digitimes adds.
