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 expects global AP shipments to surpass the 1.9 billion mark in 2017, with smartphones remaining the main application. Qualcomm will be leading the market in 2017, as other players continue playing catch up and scramble for funds to invest in more diverse applications.
