Evolving Ultrabooks to Help Counter PC Struggles in Driving Growth of Solid-State DrivesLong-term SSD prospects remain undimmed; innovation also needed for market to strengthen in the short termJuly 16, 2013
Despite the generally weak state of the PC industry, ultrathins will still form the main market for solid-state drives (SSD), in a business that retains significant long-term upside. Shipments in 2013 of SSDs will reach a projected 64.6 million units, up a notable 87 percent from 2012. SSD growth ahead will also be substantial, exceeding 30 percent each year for the next three years, before moderating to the high teens in 2017. By 2017, SSD shipments will amount to some 224.1 million units.
Mobile PC Market Serves Up Worst Q2 Performance in Over a DecadeTablets deal a blow, continuing to eat into notebook PC shipmentsJuly 08, 2013
An increasingly vulnerable mobile PC market delivered the worst second-quarter performance in 11 years during the most recent April to June period, battered by the nonstop onslaught of media tablets. The worldwide mobile PC space shrank a steep 6.9 percent in shipments compared to the first quarter based on initial findings, becoming the only time the industry has seen a sequential decline since the second quarter of 2002. At that time, mobile PC shipments had contracted 3.7 percent after the dot.com bust flattened markets everywhere.
Thinner Hard Disk Drives with Rapidly Growing Shipments to Present New OpportunitiesNew 5.0- and 7.0-mm. HDDs could make inroads into tablets and ultrathins now home to rival SSDsJuly 03, 2013
Newly released thinner hard disk drives (HDD) sized 5.0 and 7.0 millimeters have the potential to gain back some HDD market share lost to solid-state drives (SSD), especially if the new hard drives find their way into future ultrathin PCs and PC tablets. Lighter in weight and thinner in breadth, the 5.0- and 7.0-mm models will form a new class of ultraslim HDDs that are forecast to eventually displace the much thicker 9.5-mm drives that currently rule the industry. The combined shipments of 5.0- and 7.0-mm HDDs will reach 133 million units by 2017, up from just 5 million last year. Meanwhile, shipments of 9.5-mm HDDs will deteriorate over time, to 79 million in 2017, down from 245 million units in 2012.
China: No. 1 PC Market Exhibits Unique CharacteristicsDesktops are equally as popular as notebooks, counter to trends elsewhere in the worldApril 25, 2013
China rose to the top of the PC market for the first time last year, dispatching the United States to second place by a lead of more than 3 million units. PC shipments in 2012 to China amounted to 69 million units, exceeding the 66 million total reached by the United States. Only a year earlier in 2011, the United States was the leading global destination for PCs of all stripes, including desktops and notebooks. China’s PC market also displays distinct characteristics that set it apart from the PC trade elsewhere, possessing a vast untapped rural market and unique consumer-purchasing patterns.
Netbooks to Bow Out of PC Market Completely by 2015After selling prodigiously early on, the end is near for the small, economically priced laptopsApril 10, 2013
Once a white-hot PC product that sold in the tens of millions of units annually, netbook computers are now marking their final days, with the rise of tablets causing their shipments to wind down to virtually zero after next year. Shipments of netbooks this year are forecast to amount to just 3.97 million units, tantamount to a plunge off the cliff given the harsh 72 percent falloff from 14.13 million units in 2012. The market for the small, inexpensive laptops had steadily climbed for three years from the time the devices were first introduced in 2007, peaking in 2010 when shipments hit a high of 32.14 million units. Since then, however, the netbook space has imploded and gone into decline—fast.
