Taiwan LCD monitor shipments remained flat sequentially in the first quarter of 2009, but the shipments were down 18.1% from the same period one year earlier as a result of the global slowdown. The shift of demand in the market toward notebooks and away from desktop PCs was another contributing factor to slower market demand.
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.
