In December 2004, it was reported that Compal Electronics had lost out on a follow-up notebook order from Hewlett-Packard (HP), when Quanta Computer undercut Compal’s price. Quanta was willing to accept the lower ASP (average selling price) to secure shipments that should reach 2.5-3.0 million notebooks and help the company achieve its goal of shipping 14-15 million notebooks in 2005. As for Compal, its goal of shipping 9-10 million notebooks in 2005 is now looking much harder to achieve.
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.
