Fast Facts on Apple’s PC OutsourcingDecember 06, 2012In a media interview published today, Apple CEO Tim Cook said his company will shift manufacturing of one computer line from Asia to the United States starting next year. Reports did not specify how much manufacturing will be conducted in the U.S., or exactly which product was involved, but the scale and magnitude of the move is not expected to be major.
“The percentage of production likely to be shifted by Apple from Asia to the United States in 2013 is likely to be negligible, both for the company and for PC industry at large,” said Craig Stice, senior principal analyst for computer systems at IHS. “Apple’s move appears to be a symbolic effort to help improve its public image, which has been battered in recent years by reports of labor issues at its contract manufacturing partners in Asia. However, given Apple’s high profile in the market, the company’s ‘insourcing’ initiative could compel other companies to follow suit and transfer production to the United States over the next few years.”
Quad-Core Microprocessor Notebook Shipments Set to Nearly Quadruple in 2016November 28, 2012Notebook PCs during the next four years increasingly will adopt muscular quad-core microprocessors, with all types of models bulking up their computing power amid the rising competitive challenge posed by media tablets and smartphones.
Shipments of notebook PCs configured with quad-core microprocessors will nearly quadruple from 2012 to 2016, according to an IHS iSuppli Compute Platforms Topical Report from information and analytics provider IHS (NYSE: IHS). Quad-core-equipped notebook shipments will reach 179 million units by 2016, making up 59 percent of all notebooks that year. That compares to 48 million units this year, representing 22 percent of all notebooks shipped in 2012.
Mainstream and Value PCs Rule Over High-End Performance ModelsNovember 08, 2012Consumers continue to favor lower-end desktop PCs and notebook computers over high-performance models for this year and beyond, with the top-end systems accounting for only 6 percent of the market in 2012, according to an IHS iSuppli Compute Platforms Topical Report from information and analytics provider IHS (NYSE: IHS).
The latest analysis on global desktop and notebook PC penetration shows that in terms of shipments and overall market penetration, lower-end computers classified in either the “mainstream” category or the “value” segment triumphed over higher-end PCs designated in the elite “performance” sector.
This year, for instance, the mainstream desktop PC category tied with the value PC category in the share of the global desktop PC market, with each segment projected to claim an evenly matched 46.9 percent by year-end.
PC Shipments Set to Decline in 2012 for First Time in 11 YearsOctober 10, 2012After entering the year with high hopes, the global PC market has seen its prospects dim, with worldwide shipments set to decline in 2012 for the first time in 11 years, according to the IHS iSuppli Compute Platforms Service at information and analytics provider IHS (NYSE: IHS).
The total PC market in 2012 is expected to contract by 1.2 percent to 348.7 million units, down from 352.8 million in 2011, as shown in the figure below. Not since 2001—more than a decade ago—has the worldwide PC industry suffered such a decline.
Dude, You’re Not Getting an Ultrabook: 2012 Forecast is Slashed as Pricing and Marketing DisappointOctober 01, 2012Amid high pricing and a lack of effective marketing to draw consumer’s attention away from other hot-selling mobile gadgets, global ultrabook shipments are falling short of expectations in 2012, prompting IHS to cut its near-term forecast for the next-generation notebooks.
An estimated 10.3 million ultrabooks will ship worldwide in 2012, according to an IHS iSuppli Compute Platforms Topical Report from information and analytics provider IHS (NYSE: IHS). This is down from the previous forecast issued earlier this year of 22 million units. In the newly adjusted forecast for 2012, more than half of the shipments for the year are expected to come in the fourth quarter.
As Wintel Dominance Wanes, the Microsoft/Intel Alliance FraysSeptember 04, 2012After a generation of setting the pace and calling the shots in the computer market, the Microsoft Corp./Intel Corp. cartel known as Wintel now finds itself playing catch-up in the new era of smartphones and media tablets, spurring a widening rift in the historic alliance.
Despite a flurry of activities to adjust to the changed realities of the technology industry, Wintel is expected to suffer a declining share of the “new” computer market, a category consisting not just of PCs but also of the much faster-growing smartphone and media tablet segments. Microsoft’s share of the operating system market for the three products combined is expected to slip to 33 percent in 2016, down from 44 percent in 2011, according to an IHS iSuppli DRAM Dynamics Report from information and analytics provider IHS (NYSE: IHS).
All-in-One PC Shipments to Outpace Traditional Desktop PCs with Double-Digit GrowthJuly 11, 2012With their shipments projected to surge this year and beyond, all-in-one (AiO) PCs will help prop an ailing market for overall desktop PC systems, according to the IHS iSuppli Compute Platforms Service at information and analytics provider IHS (NYSE: IHS).
Shipments of AiO PCs are forecast to reach 16.4 million units this year, up a robust 20 percent from 13.7 million units last year. In comparison, worldwide growth of traditional desktop PC shipments in 2012 will amount to a dismal 0.2 percent—rising from approximately 132.0 million units to 132.3 million units.
DRAM Market’s Woes Are Over in 2012, Courtesy of Elpida BankruptcyMay 15, 2012The market for dynamic random access memory (DRAM) is expected to partially reverse the drastic losses it incurred in 2011 and achieve revenue growth this year, the result of balanced supply and demand following the exit of major manufacturer Elpida Memory Inc., according to an IHS iSuppli DRAM Market Tracker report from information and analytics provider IHS (NYSE: IHS).
Global DRAM industry revenue this year is forecast to reach $30.6 billion, up 3.3 percent from $29.6 billion in 2011. Although seemingly small, the revenue expansion for 2012 is a welcome development given the stunning 25 percent contraction last year.
No Contest: Apple iOS to Maintain Tablet Dominance in 2012May 15, 2012After suffering a temporary dip in market share in the fourth quarter of 2011, Apple Inc.’s iOS is expected to reassert its commanding leadership of the worldwide tablet space in 2012, according to an IHS iSuppli Worldwide Tablet Market Tracker report from information and analytics provider IHS (NYSE: IHS).
After dipping to 55.1 percent in the fourth quarter of 2011, according to a final estimate, the Apple operating system’s share of worldwide tablet sales—a segment including both media tablets and PC-type tablets—is set to recover to 61 percent for the full year of 2012, about the same portion it had in 2011.
Cloud Server Market Set to Double from 2010 to 2012January 16, 2012Spurred by the rising use of online storage and infrastructure systems to support services like Apple Inc.’s iCloud, cloud servers will enjoy robust prospects in 2012 and then move on to become the fastest-growing segment of the server industry within three years.
Intel Takes Ultrabooks Further Down the Tablet Path at CESJanuary 10, 2012Intel Corp. at CES on Monday demonstrated a prototype ultrabook dubbed Nikiski that features a transparent touch pad panel allowing tablet-style operation. The advent of the Nikiski represents the first wave of what promises to be a deluge of tablet-style ultrabooks designed to stave off the inroads of Apple Inc.’s iPad and other competing devices.
Atom Bomb Doesn’t Detonate Intel’s Microprocessor Business in Q3December 22, 2011Despite a plunge in sales of its Atom chips destined for the moribund netbook market, Intel Corp. in the third quarter managed to expand its leadership position in the global microprocessor business on the strength of its corporate sales.
Intel in the third quarter accounted for 83.7 percent of global microprocessor revenue, up 1.2 percentage points from the 82.5 percent it held in the second quarter of 2011
Thailand Flood Spurs Nearly 4 Million-Unit Shortfall in PC Shipments in Q1 2012December 08, 2011
Hard disk drive (HDD) shortages triggered by the Thailand flood will result in a 3.8 million-unit shortfall in PC shipments in the first quarter of 2012 compared to the previous IHS forecast issued in August. This will contribute to a reduced forecast for the whole of next year, with global PC shipments now expected to expand by only 6.8 percent in 2012, down from the previous outlook of 9.5 percent growth.
