Digitimes Research: AIO PC shipments to stablize in 2017, 2018
Betty Shyu, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Wednesday 7 June 2017]

All-in-one (AIO) PC shipments are expected to stablize in both 2017 and 2018 after declining for three years in a row. Due to weak demand from the consumer sector, AIO PC shipments were down 1.7% on year to reach only 12.18 million units in 2016.

Since AIO PC shipments had an on-year decline smaller than the overall desktop market, the share of AIO PCs to overall desktop shipments hit a new high at 10.4% in 2016 and the percentage will continue to grow in both 2017 and 2018.

Lenovo was the largest vendor worldwide and its shipment gap with second-place Hewlett-Packard (HP) widened in 2016. The Top-4 AIO PC vendors together contributed 83.8% of the worldwide AIO PC shipments in 2016.

Lenovo is seeing increased shipments and HP is enjoying strong sales for its enterprise AIO PC models in 2017. Apple is also ready to launch new AIO PC products this year. The top-4 vendors' combined share of worldwide AIO PC shipments is expected to rise to 85.2% in 2017, according to Digitimes Research's latest report on AIO PCs.

After TPV-Inventa left the AIO PC market, orders that were originally given to the maker have mostly been taken by Compal Electronics, allowing Compal to have the largest AIO PC shipment growth in both 2016 and 2017 compared to others. Compal will also become the second-largest AIO PC maker in Taiwan in 2017.
