Taiwanese tech site DigiTimes estimates global laptop shipments hit an all-time high in the third quarter of 2020. The site's research unit says shipments rose 8.6 percent sequentially in Q3 2020. Exact figures are locked behind a paywall.
The mature notebook market has seen robust demand thanks to stay-at-home needs in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. Third-quarter 2020 notebook shipments hit a record high, driven by better-than-expected education procurement orders catering to back-to-school demand, according to Digitimes Research. The server sector is another beneficiary of pandemic-triggered demand this year. Microsoft has just announced plans to build an Azure datacenter in Taiwan with aims to turn the country into the firm's Asian operations hub. And Taiwan's LCD panel makers are expected to see shipments for IT applications stay in high gear in foruth-quarter 2020.
