The Apple iPhone Factor – A Catalyst or An Obsolete Factor?
Competition has been stiff in the smartphone industry. Apple risks losing its 3rd spot to Xiaomi by the very close call, with Oppo and Vivo all gaining market rapidly.
Apple iPhone sales haven’t been that great either. Device sales have faced severe disruption from up and coming new phone device makers from China. From the graph below we see iPhone sales unit growth close to 0% for the past few years, while revenue edged up, signifying added premiums charged by Apple for its phone devices.
Inari Amertron Bhd should still have one last trump card its sleeve. 5G is the up and coming trend and catalyst in the tech and semiconductor industry. Leveraged well, Inari Amertron Bhd could finally outgrow from being an Apple proxy to a global 5G chip player.
