Apple iPhone supply chain expects a strong September15
The supply chain sources said that with disappointing sales of the LG G4, HTC One M9/M9+ and the Sony Xperia Z3+, Apple is expected to once again take over the smartphone world. This forecast comes despite a less than rip roaring global economy which has seen a major market meltdown in China, one of the biggest markets for the iPhone.
An example of a company in the iPhone supply chain that has benefited from strong iPhone 6s orders is Catcher. The company reported August consolidated revenue of $219.81 million, up 15.2% sequentially, and 43.6% year-over-year. The company supplies Apple with chassis for the iPhone, and has employed new material this year to avoid a repeat of the Bendgate issue that affected the Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 Plus last year.
