As in the case of many other electronics companies from all over the world, Apple also relies heavily on various Asian production lines. Many essential components of various generations of iPhone, including iPhone5, or iPad are successfully produced abroad, at the same quality and at more convenient prices. The Asian workforce is qualified and can deliver sophisticated orders in a relatively short amount of time.
The configuration of the manufacturing process is relatively easy, at least at the first look. The main designs of the products are issued at the Apple headquarters, located in the USA. The production of the components is distributed through various local centers dispersed all over the world, mainly in Asian countries. At the end of the working line, all the products are put together, creating easily your favorite Apple product.
And, in a certain way, this genesis of the Apple products makes sense. The home country of the finest type of apple is Asia. Thus, it is highly understandable from where is generated the power of the miraculous products distributed by one of the most famous USA brands of all times.
Knowing the needs and possibilities of the Asian customers represents an important feature of the biggest business plans of most part of the big international companies. The Asian countries represent a huge market not only for producing various components of the Apple chips, but also for purchasing the products distributed by this company. iPad and iPhone5, for instance, are one of the most favorite gadgets in China, Malaysia, Singapore, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan, to name only few of them. Thus, by the decision of delocalize the production, Apple is not only producing more for less, but also is closer to an attractive market constantly expanding.
Apple’s presence in Asia is also important due to the high competition faced in this part of the world from the part of local companies. USA continues to remain an interesting and stable market, but the big games seem to be played overseas, where creative companies as Samsung or HTC are keen to offer to the local market their own variants.
Thus, creativity remains one Apple’s main assets. New products with new innovative settings are launched periodically answering promptly concerns and demands raised by the market. The permanent contact with the Asian world may represent also a direct contact with the mindset of the Asian customers and the local competition.
The secret factories of Apple could be more than the huge laboratories manufacturing the components of the relatives of iPhone5 and iPad but also the creative workshops where Apple learns to read the future in a different way, in the universal language of innovations.
