Apple sales rise to double digits for iPhone, iPad and Mac

Sales of the US company Apple rose to double digits for iPhone, iPad, Mac and wearable technologies.

Apple designs, manufactures, and markets smartphones, personal computers, tablets, wearable devices, and accessories, and sells a variety of related services.

After its net sales grew 6% in fiscal year 2020, this indicator climbed 33.3% in 2021 (fiscal year ended last September 25).

Thus, its net sales reached 365,817 million dollars.

In the same way, Apple’s sales accumulated a growth of 40.6% in the last two years.

The markets for the company’s products and services are highly competitive and characterized by aggressive price competition and downward pressure on gross margins, frequent introduction of new products and services, short product life cycles, evolving industry standards, continuous improvement in product price and performance characteristics, rapid adoption of technological advancements by competitors, and price sensitivity by consumers and businesses.

According to the company itself, many of Apple’s competitors seek to compete primarily through aggressive pricing and very low-cost structures, imitating Apple’s products and infringing on its intellectual property.

Apple sales

Because it currently sources certain components from limited or single sources, the company is subject to significant supply and pricing risks.

Many components are sometimes subject to industry-wide shortages and significant fluctuations in commodity prices that can significantly adversely affect the company’s business, results of operations, and financial condition.

For example, the global semiconductor industry is experiencing high demand and supply shortages, which has negatively affected Apple’s ability to source sufficient quantities of components and products on commercially reasonable terms or not at all.

Of Apple’s total sales in the last fiscal year, 133.8 billion dollars were made in the United States (with a year-on-year growth of 22.5%), and 68.4 billion dollars in China (an increase of 69.7% annually).
