Notebook shipments up 41 percent

Posted on Sunday, May 11 2008 @ 17:15:42 CEST by

DigiTimes writes Taiwanese notebook makers aren't facing any problems from the credit crisis, notebook shipments are up 41 percent year-over-year.
Of the top-four makers, Quanta Computer had shipments of eight million units, Compal Electronics 6.1 million, Wistron 4.3 million and Inventec three million. Including shipments by second-tier makers, around 26 million notebooks were shipped by Taiwan-based makers in first quarter 2008, a sequential drop of 8%, but an on-year increase of 41%, according to Digitimes Research.

If the total notebook shipments in the first quarter include those of Asustek Computer's Eee PC, which shipped around 700,000 units, the total shipment volume increases to 27.07 million units, for a sequential drop of 5% and on-year growth of 45%.

The overall low-cost PC and mini-notebook markets are expected to reach a scale of 13-15 million units in 2008, leading to an increase in Taiwan's total notebook shipments in the second quarter.
Shipments shot up significantly but margins are under pressure due to new labor laws in China and rising material costs.
