According to Digitimes, OEMs last year saw their first growth in the PC market in nearly a decade, and they expect the good days to continue until 2021.
According to sources, ODM manufacturer Pegatron (Pegatron) has a strong demand for notebooks. Both Microsoft and Asustek Computer have placed eager orders in the first quarter to meet the growing needs of the home family economy.
Acer CEO Jason Chen also predicts that shipments of notebooks and related accessories will increase year-on-year in 2021.
According to the news, Huawei will also increase its focus on the notebook computer market. Previously, the smartphone market was still restricted due to the inability to use the Google Play Store, which limited their opportunities outside the Chinese market.
However, the ambitions of PC OEMs are being limited by the shortage of parts, and the shortage of processors is expected to get worse first.
Acer Jason Chen said that one of the reasons for the problem is the serious lack of support for the foundry of 8-inch chip wafers.
The US government has promised to take “active measures” to solve the global processor shortage, work with companies and trading partners to find the most serious choke points in the supply chain, and formulate “strategies” to prevent bottlenecks in the future.
