Joanne Chien, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Friday 8 August 2014]

The five largest notebook vendors' combined shipments in July decreased 25% on month while the three largest ODMs' combined shipments also slipped 17%, according to Digitimes Research.

Hewlett-Packard (HP) and Lenovo saw over 30% declines while Acer and Asustek Computer saw roughly 20%. Dell, however, saw an increase in shipments.

In terms of ODMs, Compal saw a 20% decline while Wistron saw an 11% decline.

Despite the declines for notebook vendors and ODMs, their shipments from January-July 2014 have overall increased over the same period in 2013.

Chromebooks meanwhile reached 1.5 million in shipments during the second quarter of 2014 to hold a 3.7% share in overall notebook shipments, up from 2.4% in the previous quarter. Samsung Electronics and Acer are the main suppliers of the technology, currently holding a 80-85% share in the market, added Digitimes Research.
