Taiwan component makers to play key role in Apple iPhone supply chain

While speculation regarding Apple Computer's upcoming iPhone continues to circulate, a recent research report from BNP Paribas revealed that certain Taiwan component makers will be major beneficiaries.

BNP noted that shipments of an iPhone equipped with a 2-megapixel camera is slated for launch in the second quarter of next year. Annual shipments should total about 5-6 million units.

Taiwan component makers will start shipping mechanical components for the iPhone in the first quarter of 2007 but initial revenue benefits will be limited, as only one model has been planned.

Foxconn International Holdings (FIH), which was listed as the EMS provider in the report, declined to comment on the news.
