HTC’s market capitalization is expected to soon surpass NT$1 trillion according to a report on Wednesday from Taiwan Economic News. The company’s market cap recently passed the NT$900 million mark, and analysts believe it will grow beyond NT$1 trillion — just below $35 billion USD — this year. As HTC pushes out popular devices like the EVO 4G, Legend and Desire, the company’s shipments and revenue continue to grow; HTC shipped 25 million devices in 2010, a 111% increase over the prior year, and it forecasts revenue growth of 147% in 2011. Should HTC’s market cap surpass NT$1 trillion this year, it will be just the third company on the Taiwan Stock Exchange to reach the milestone, joining Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., Ltd. and Foxconn parent company Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., Ltd.
