Because of the US-China trade tensions and Intel's ongoing CPU shortages, worldwide all-in-one (AIO) PC shipments are expected to shrink 5% on year to arrive at only 12.8 million units in 2019, a weaker performance than expected previously.
AIO PCs will account for 12.6% of overall desktop shipments in 2019, Digitimes Research's numbers showed.
Of the top-4 AIO PC brands, the top-2 brands - Apple and Lenovo - will see sharper shipment declines than others in 2019, while third-place Hewlett-Packard (HP) and foruth-place Dell will both see stead performances.
AIO PC ODM Quanta Computer will be hit quite hard as a result of both Apple and HP cutting orders. Lenovo has also reduced its AIO PC orders for its ODM partners Wistron and Compal Electronics for 2019.
