The top three market leaders are TSMC, Samsung, and GlobalFoundries, with market shares of 52.7%, 17.8%, and 8%, respectively.SemiconductorsTue, 10 Dec 2019 06:18:00 +00003315 at http://www.trendforce.comRevenue Ranking of Global Top 10 IC Design Companies Shows U.S. Companies Having Divergent Performances in 3Q19, Says TrendForce newest analysis from TrendForce shows that several U.S.-based IC design companies experienced continually expanding losses in 3Q19 revenue because of the ongoing China-U.S. trade war and because Huawei had yet to be removed from the Entity List. Of the U.S.-based companies, Qualcomm demonstrated the greatest revenue loss with a 22% decline.SemiconductorsWed, 04 Dec 2019 05:50:00 +00003314 at http://www.trendforce.comGlobal Smartphone Production Volume Grows 9.2% in 3Q19, with Minor Projected Decline in 4Q19, Says TrendForce to TrendForce, in an effort to meet the market’s stock-up demand in the peak season, total production volume for smartphone brands in 3Q19 is estimated at 375 million units, a 9.2 growth QoQ. The top six positions are Samsung, Huawei, Apple, OPPO, Xiaomi, and Vivo, which accounted for 78% of global market share.Consumer ElectronicsThu, 28 Nov 2019 05:46:00 +00003313 at http://www.trendforce.com3Q19 TV Shipment Grows 16.8% QoQ Owing to Peak Season, with Slight Projected Decline YoY, Says TrendForce latest analysis from the WitsView research division of TrendForce shows that global TV shipment in 3Q19 reached 54.97 million units, a 16.8% growth QoQ and 1.9% decline YoY. As China-U.S. trade relations worsened in 2Q19, TV brands took on a speculative attitude towards stocking-up. This attitude completely changed with the imminent arrival, towards the second half of 3Q19, of Double 11 in China and year-end festivities in Europe and the Americas, which are both shopping holidays that require companies to stock up. Not only did TV brands actively ramp up their shipments, but they also hoped to make up for lost sales in 1H19 through large-scale sales promotions.Consumer ElectronicsWed, 27 Nov 2019 05:59:00 +00003312 at http://www.trendforce.com3Q19 NAND Flash Revenue Grows 10% amidst Resurging Pre-Peak Season Demand for Shipment, Says TrendForce to the DRAMeXchange research division of TrendForce, 3Q19 NAND flash industrial revenue showed a nearly 15% growth of total bit shipment, owing to the seasonality-driven demand for products shipments and the additional product shipment made available in preparation for U.S. tariffs. On the other hand, suppliers were able to improve their inventory levels and deter a mass sell-off in the wafer market driven by low prices, in turn diminishing the dip in contract price. 3Q19 industrial revenue reached $11.9 billion, a 10.2% growth.NAND FlashMon, 25 Nov 2019 05:41:00 +00003311 at http://www.trendforce.comGlobal OSAT Market Shows Signs of Gradual Recovery in 2H19, with Yearly Revenue Estimated to Decline Slightly, Says TrendForce to the latest research from TrendForce, the decline in the global OSAT industry showed signs of a gradual halt in 3Q19, since the drop in memory prices began to slow down, and smartphone sales steadily recovered. The top ten OSAT providers posted a total revenue of US$6 billion in 3Q19, a 10.1% growth YoY and 18.7% growth QoQ, indicating that the market as a whole is well on its way to recovery. Aside from KYEC and Chipbond’s consistently stable performance, ASE, JCET, TFME, and TSHT are also once again showing a trend of yearly revenue upswing.SemiconductorsWed, 20 Nov 2019 06:03:00 +00003310 at http://www.trendforce.comDemand for Preemptive 3Q19 DRAM Shipment Rises, Pushing Global DRAM Revenue Up by 4%, Says TrendForce to the DRAMeXchange research division of TrendForce, demand-side inventory in 2H19 has returned to relatively healthy levels. Furthermore, some vendors pulled their quarterly product shipment forward in an effort to avoid potential negative impacts from Trump’s impending tariffs; this shift skyrocketed DRAM suppliers’ sales bits in 3Q19, driving total DRAM revenue up by 4% and ending the QoQ decline which lasted over three consecutive quarters. Despite an already strong-performing base period in 3Q19, the three major DRAM manufacturers are projected to increase their shipments even further in 4Q19, propelled by demands from the server and smartphone markets.DRAMMon, 18 Nov 2019 06:05:00 +00003309 at http://www.trendforce.comDecline in Q4 DRAM Contract Prices Lessens as Buying Momentum Recovers, Says TrendForce to the latest analysis from the DRAMeXchange research division of TrendForce, Q4 DRAM ASP is as of yet undergoing a slight QoQ decline, but this decline has shrunk down to 5%. In contrast, the total trading volume in October has seen considerable QoQ growth, which demonstrates an increased willingness to pay on the purchasers’ part. Once suppliers’ inventory levels have sufficiently lowered, they will no longer need to cut prices to encourage further sales. These factors have the potential to help DRAM prices stabilize and recover in 2020.StorageMon, 11 Nov 2019 07:15:00 +00003308 at http://www.trendforce.comResurgence of 16:10 Aspect Ratio Laptop Computers to Occupy 2% Share of Non-Apple Market in 2020, Says TrendForce gradual technical maturation of narrow bezels means a higher screen-to-body ratio and wider, thinner laptops. With this change in the physical appearance of laptops, manufacturers are once again looking to incorporate panels with a 16:10 aspect ratio. Despite Apple's longstanding adoption of 16:10 and the aspect ratio's once-popularity in Windows laptops, global market intelligence provider TrendForce projects a <2% share of 16:10 screens in the non-Apple laptop market due to adoption rate, impact to consumers, and a need for panel makers to optimize cuts made to the mother glass.Consumer ElectronicsMon, 04 Nov 2019 06:12:00 +00003307 at http://www.trendforce.com2019 Shipment of Flat-Panel Display Driver IC Exhibits Negative Growth Under Influence of Reduced Panel Production, Says TrendForce to the latest analysis from the WitsView research division of TrendForce, reduced panel shipment is causing the demand for flat-panel display driver IC to undergo a corresponding decline. The 2019 YoY growth for total adoption is projected to be -3.2%, which marks the first instance of negative growth in recent years. The space for shipment growth in 2020 is likely also limited.SemiconductorsTue, 29 Oct 2019 05:53:00 +00003306 at
