Digitimes Research: Notebook shipments enjoy over 25% on-month growth in March
Joanne Chien, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Monday 7 April 2014]

In March, global top-5 notebook brand vendors and top-3 ODMs both achieved an over 25% on-month shipment growth due to February's weak shipments caused by inventory adjustments, orders for new products and end of support of Windows XP in early April, according to Digitimes Research's figures.

Toshiba, Hewlett-Packard (HP), Lenovo and Acer all achieved over 30% on-month notebook shipment growth in March. Toshiba had over 40% on-month growth for its notebook shipments in March because of new product launches and extra orders for trying to fill in the gap created by Sony's leaving that market.

HP shipped over three million notebooks in March, while Dell's shipments in the past three months were all weaker than those in the previous year. Lenovo was the second-largest vendor, trailing HP by 300,000-500,000 units in February and March.

Wistron enjoyed an almost 40% on-month growth in March, while Quanta Computer and Compal Electronics both had over 25% on-month growth.

As for Samsung Electronics, which has turned conservative about the notebook industry, the company is planning to ship 6.3 million notebooks in 2014 with three million units being Chromebooks. Samsung will see a 70% on-year growth for its Chromebooks in 2014.
