According to Digitimes Research statistics, global tablet shipments in the second quarter of 2017 totaled 33.39 million units, down 10.3% from the level of the previous quarter as white-box vendors reduced their shipments due to rising memory costs and the market experienced slowing demand as a result of the low season.
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.
