iPhone 6S Series Drives Sales of Flex PCBs


Reading time ( words)

The upcoming release of Apple Inc.'s iPhone 6S series, which will feature Force Touch technology, is expected to drive demand for flexible PCBs (FPCBs) as Apple is set to increase its orders from Taiwanese firms Zhen Ding Technology and Flexium Interconnect, according to a Digitimes report. This is expected to boost sales of both Zhen Ding and Flexium for the second half of 2015.

In addition, HDI PCB manufacturers Compeq Manufacturing and Unimicron Technology are both expected to see their quarterly revenues register sequential growth through the last quarter of 2015, the Digitimes report added, as both are reportedly PCB suppliers in Apple's supply chain.
