Digitimes Research: All-in-one PC shipments to decline in 2014
Joanne Chien, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Tuesday 26 August 2014]

Desktop shipments are expected to enjoy growth in 2014 with Microsoft ending its support for Windows XP, but the all-in-one PC market, which focuses mainly on the consumer market and did not start enjoying demand until recent years, may not be able to benefit from the growth.

Digitimes Research expects all-in-one PC shipments to drop 2.4% on year in 2014 because enterprise and consumer buyers have both used their budgets to purchase conventional desktops. Sony quitting from the PC market is another driver that is causing all-in-one PC shipments to drop in 2014.

Apple and Lenovo are the top-2 vendors in the all-in-one PC market and the two's combined market share has been rising each year and is expected to surpass 60% in 2014.

Most other vendors have seen their market shares decline. Despite Hewlett-Packard (HP) and Dell still having a large desktop client base, they are unlikely to reverse the situation.

However, ODM/OEMs are seeing different results. TPV-Inventa Technology, Compal Electronics and Foxconn Electronics (Hon Hai Precision Industry) are expected to achieve on-year shipment growth in 2014 mainly thanks to increasing orders from Lenovo and HP. For 2014, TPV-Inventa's shipments will return to above two million units and Compal will have a chance to achieve over one million unit shipments for the first time.
