According to a new supply chain report we learn that with related yield rates significantly improving, the Apple Watch is expected to see a significant shipment growth in the second half of 2015, boosting the revenue performance of the device's manufacturer Quanta Computer. Quanta also recently noted that its wearable device shipments have been growing significantly since the second quarter.
Apple's supply chain players are closely monitoring Apple Watch's performance and are prepping for a possible surge in orders in the second half of 2015. Although the Apple Watch has gotten off to a slow start, the Apple Watch is still set to take top spot for smartwatches in 2015 by a wide margin.
Today Apple rolled out their Apple Watch for the first time in Italy, Mexico, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland and Taiwan. On July 17 Apple will begin sales of the Apple Watch in The Netherlands, Sweden and Thailand.
If production yields continue to improve, it's a no-brainer that sales of Apple's latest iDevice will significantly increase. Yet it's always great to hear the optimism coming from the company that's actually making the watch.
