Friday 24 January 2014
Recovering demand in both the enterprise and consumer segments boosted Taiwan ODMs' notebook shipments by 2.5% sequentially in the fourth quarter of 2013, slightly weaker than the worldwide growth of 4.1%. Low-price tablets, Apple's new iPads and new smartphone models did not undermine demand for notebooks as much as originally feared.
In 2018, global server shipments will grow 8.5% to reach 13.73 million units. Digitimes Research estimates server shipments worldwide will grow at a CAGR of 6.5% during the period 2017-2022, with growth mainly driven by large-scale data centers and the China market.
Digitimes Research estimates total shipments of smartphone APs worldwide will grow 1.5% on year to 1.67 billion units in 2018. The slowing growth in the smartphone market means global smartphone AP shipments will only grow at a mild pace in the next few years, reaching 1.77 billion units in 2021.
