Smartphone camera lens maker Largan Precision Co (大立光), a major supplier to Apple Inc, on Saturday reported a 19.49 percent drop in sales last month from a month earlier, which it said was due to weaker global demand.
Consolidated sales last month fell to NT$3.23 billion (US$104.66 million), the lowest since March last year, when they stood at NT$3.14 billion, Largan said in a statement.
The figure was a 33.86 percent decline from December 2017, the company said.
Largan’s 20 megapixel lenses and high-end models, which command higher prices, accounted for 10 to 20 percent of its total sales last month, while its 10 megapixel lenses made up 60 to 70 percent and 8 megapixel lenses 10 to 20 percent, Largan said. [FULL STORY]
