Taiwan's shipments of network interface cards (NICs) and wireless routers (WRs) both increased sequentially in the fourth quarter of 2010, thanks to seasonal demand. In addition to the seasonal effect, labor shortage in China after Lunar New Year will also affect shipments in first-quarter 2011.
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.
