ASUS continues to be the number one brand coming out of Taiwan, beating out several of its rivals in the mobile industry. Of course, the company has its hand in many more industries than just mobile, such as PC and other electronics. However, it is still surprising to see ASUS so far in front of the likes of HTC.
HTC, for many, is the company to think of when considering smartphone manufacturers in Taiwan, but its single business structure means it cannot compete with multi-division organizations. HTC came in sixth in the results (behind Trend Micro, Want-Want, Acer, and Giant). Processor upstart MediaTek continues to make waves and moved up to ninth in the list, but we suspect it will crack top five by the end of 2016.
