Asustek vice president of open platform business Chewei Lin said the company expects to ship 25 million motherboards this year, up 20 percent from 21 million units in 2009. The company had a 33 percent marketshare of the global motherboard market in 2009 and is aiming to achieve 50 percent in 2014.
Lin expects the company will ship five million units in the first quarter of 2010, mainly benefiting by recovering demand from Europe as well as Lunar New Year demand from China.
Shipments in the second quarter of 2010 will break six million units to reach a total of over 11 million units for the first half of the year. The company aims to ship a further 14 million units in the second half.
