Global smartphone AP suppliers will see their shipments to China grow only 13.5% on year and drop 3.1% on quarter in the first quarter of 2014. The largest supplier MediaTek is seeing its shipments weakening and its LTE products so far still have not yet been able to help cover its existing product lines.
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.
