Top Notebook ODMs Off to a Wobbly Start of 2013 as Shipments FalterA slow first quarter is in store, with Ultrabooks then kicking in later in the year to revive ODM productionFebruary 19, 2013
The world’s top notebook PC original design manufacturers (ODM) will endure a bleak first quarter and generally slow first half in 2013, before prospects improve later in the year because of stronger expected sales of Ultrabooks and other ultrathin mobile computers, according to an IHS iSuppli PC Dynamics market brief from information and analytics provider IHS.
Notebook PC shipments from the Top 5 ODMs are forecast to reach some 35.2 million units during the first quarter, down 12 percent from 40.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.
All based in Taiwan, the Top 5 notebook ODMs are employed by original equipment manufacturers (OEM), which make use of the ODMs on an outsourced or contract manufacturing basis in order to make computers that are then branded by the OEM to sell to the public. The key strengths of Taiwanese notebook ODMs include low manufacturing cost, flexibility, quick response and high vertical integration—qualities that most major notebook OEMs are keen to leverage in the design and manufacture of their own branded products.
