Apple suppliers keeps Taiwan tech sales growing despite smartphone slowdown

Foxconn loses some iPhone 8 Plus orders to smaller rival

TAIPEI -- Apple suppliers continued to lead major Taiwanese technology companies' sales in January, while combined revenue of 19 companies monitored by the Nikkei Asian Review rose more than double-digit from a year earlier, despite a significant moderation from December.

For January, overall sales of the 19 tech companies increased 13.28% from the same month a year ago to a 953.4 billion New Taiwan dollars ($32.5 billion), marking the 14th consecutive month of growth. However, January sales declined 23.1% from NT$1.24 trillion in December, which was the highest monthly revenue figure since January 2013, when listed companies in Taiwan began to adopt international financial reporting standards.
