The Taiwanese Desktop PC Industry, 3Q 2014

This research report presents shipment volume and value forecast and recent quarter review of the Taiwanese desktop PC industry. The report includes desktop PC shipment volume, value, ASP, shipment by tier and maker, product mix analysis, as well as breakdowns by customer, shipment destination, business type, and assembly location. The content of this report is based on primary data obtained through interviews with desktop PC makers. The report finds that shipment volume of the Taiwanese desktop PC industry reached around 16.9 million units in the second quarter of 2014, up 6.1% sequentially and 21.4% year-on-year. The desktop PC industry, with the majority shipped being the commercial ones, has been benefited greatly from the wave of replacement demand for commercial PC systems in 2014. Shipment value arrived at around US$4.58 billion in the second quarter. In anticipation of the release of more desktop PCs powered with new Intel and AMD platforms in the second half of 2014, the industry’s shipment volume is projected to grow further. It is anticipated that the industry’s shipment volume will top around 17.5 million units in the third quarter of 2014, the highest quarterly total ever.

Global Development of 4K2K LCD TV Panels in 2014 and Beyond

4K2K LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) TV panels have drawn intense attention from panel brands around the world. In 2013, Taiwanese makers were the first to come out with 4K2K panels and since then the resolution competition has been heating up. In terms of shipments, Taiwan’s makers however lost ground to Korean counterparts in the second quarter of 2014. This is because, aside from having more production capacity for 4K2K TV panels, Korean makers have been able to provide a broad range of different sizes. This report outlines the latest development of 4K2K LCD TV panels, including low-cost RGBW (Red, Green, Blue, White) ones, and examines key strategies of major 4K2K panel makers in Taiwan and Korea. Details of the new report, table of contents and ordering information can be found on Electronics.ca Publications’ web site.

Semiconductor Industry and Equipment Markets in China

China is by far the largest consumer of semiconductors; it accounts for about 45 percent of the worldwide demand for chips, used both in China and for exports. But more than 90 percent of its consumption relies on imported integrated circuits. Integrated-circuit companies in China entered the semiconductor market late—some two decades after the rest of the world—and have been playing catch-up ever since in an industry in which success depends on scale and learning efficiencies. The Chinese government made several attempts to build a local semiconductor industry, but none really took hold. Now, however, things are changing on both the business and policy fronts.
