(Dec 27): Taiyo Yuden Co, a Japanese maker of ceramic capacitors used in smartphones, sees increasing demand for its components next year as China pushes ahead with the fifth generation of cellular technology.

“We’re already getting orders for 5G base stations,” Chief Executive Officer Shoichi Tosaka said in an interview on Thursday. “Early next year we should start seeing 5G-related orders for smartphones.”

Huawei Technologies Co and ZTE Corp have led the orders for capacitors used in base stations, Tosaka said. The demand is coming mostly from Chinese carriers, after the Trump administration pushed US allies to exclude Chinese suppliers from their networks. Huawei may sell 100 million 5G-enabled smartphones in China alone next year, Tosaka said.
