This research report presents mobile phone shipment volume forecast and recent quarter review of major Taiwanese branded vendors. The report includes shipment volume and value, ASP, vendor volume ranking, shipment by brands, and price trend. Also provided are shipment breakdowns by system technology, operating system, display technology, panel size, shipment destination, and production location. The content of this report is based on primary data obtained through interviews with Taiwanese mobile phone branded vendors. The report finds that the shipment volume of Taiwanese branded mobile phones shrank 36.1% sequentially to around 4.39 million units in the third quarter of 2013, mainly due to international rivals' new flagship product rollouts, such as Apple iPhone 5S/5C and Samsung Galaxy Note 3. In China, Taiwanese vendors, who do not have strong brand image, are expected to lose ground under siege of many emerging Chinese vendors. Looking ahead to the first half of 2014, shipment volume of the Taiwanese branded mobile phones will reach around 8.52 million units, down 29% year on year.
