Motherboard makers to see shipments plummet in 1Q19 - PCSTATS.com Motherboard makers to see shipments plummet in 1Q19

Reports Digitimes.com.... "Motherboard makers are likely to see their shipments fall dramatically in the first quarter of 2019, due to seasonal factors coupled with lingering sluggish demand from the crypto mining sector, according to industry sources.

The sources noted that worldwide motherboard shipments in 2018 were down over 10% from those in 2017 as demand for hardware upgrade remained weak, while Intel's entry-level and mid-range processors were in serious shortages.

Shipments are expected to continue slipping in 2019, but the decline is likely to be less than 10% with Asustek Computer, Micro-Star International (MSI) and ASRock having a chance of maintaining their volumes at the 2018 levels, the sources said.

Gigabyte Technology, Biostar Microtech International and Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS) are likely to suffer from declines due to high shipment proportions of entry-level products, said the sources.

Vendors' profitability from their motherboard businesses is also expected to slump in 2019, the sources noted.

In 2018, worldwide brand motherboard shipments were around 40 million units with Asustek shipping around 14-15 million, Gigabyte 10 million, MSI six million and ASRock four million.

With demand from the cryptocurrency mining sector plunging, the gaming sector will become the main marketing focus for the vendors in 2019. Nvidia has recently launched its new GeForce RTX 2060 GPU priced starting US$349, while AMD is scheduled to begin promoting its new Radeon VII GPU using TSMC 7nm process in February."
