Digitimes Research: Global notebook shipments decline 4.9% in 2Q14
Joanne Chien, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Monday 14 July 2014]

Global notebook shipments dropped 4.9% on year in the second quarter of 2014, according to Digitimes Research. Despite the end of Windows XP bringing about a surge of notebook orders, panels and some key components were in limited supply, and demand in China and South and Central America was down, resulting in the sequential decline.

Despite the decline, Hewlett-Packard (HP) saw 19.1% on-year growth in the second quarter as it capped on business opportunities prior to the discontinuation of Windows XP coupled with aggressive strategies in gaining shipments in the education segment from as early as the second half of 2013. Acer meanwhile reported 31.3% sequential growth during the second quarter as retail partners adjusted their inventories and the vendor released new units.

In terms of OEMs, the two largest makers held a 61% share in shipments. Additionally, Wistron saw 13.3% sequential growth while Inventec and Pegatron both saw less than three million units shipped each, added Digitimes Research.
