Depending on the complexity of the complex computer systems market, it seems that the hardware components market is not really shining in 2015
Last month we saw that despite cautious optimism, the personal computer market (stationary and laptops sold in advance) continues to shrink, which is not really encouraging. Now, up-to-date data from the digitimes website makes it clear that the hardware components market for those who want to assemble their computers alone - the situation is not much better.
Asos and Gigabyte, the two Taiwanese manufacturers battling for lead in the motherboard market for nearly a decade, have brought in stores about 8 one million motherboards each during the first half of 2015 - a figure that is significantly lower than they hoped to make it difficult to meet With the stated goal of bringing over 20 one million motherboards to stores in the entire 2015.
As it seems right now, the two companies will have trouble crossing over the 18 million motherboards (each) in 2015 - a figure that in itself will be a significant slump, especially for Asus, Which in recent years has supplied more than 1 million units to 20 stores on a regular basis, including in 2014, where 22 has supplied about 1 million boards worldwide.
However, the top two can be a little comforting - the situation of the smaller players in the market, MSI, Asrock, ECS and Biostar, is even worse. Basruk and MSI have brought to stores approximately 2 one million motherboards (each), making reaching the goal of more than 6 million boards for the entire 2015 year virtually impossible unless some miracle happens within the generation of a generation The Skylake of Intel. This is a particularly disappointing disappointment for Asrok, who only a few years ago enjoyed an impressive rise in the motherboard world and aimed at data of eight million boards a year or more, and believed that she could bring more than 7 motherboards this year.
Biostar andECS, The two small actresses with almost no representative in the country, brought a little over a million motherboards to the stores in the first half of the year - and they seem to be near breaking point. ECS Has apparently decided on a gradual exit from this market.
We can only hope, once again, that "comparing conditions" in the processor market in the new 14-nm generation will help to fuel a new competitive fire in the computer world, sweeping both the complex computer and hardware components. Do you believe this could really happen, or that the shrinking of the "classic" computing world is inevitable?
