Press Release


  • TrendForce Releases the 2019 Rankings of Taiwanese PV Module and Inverter Manufacturers
    02-12-2020 Sharon Chen
    The latest analysis from the EnergyTrend research division of TrendForce finds that Taiwan’s newly installed capacity reached historical highs in 2019, with over 36% growth YoY compared to each quarter in 2018. This growth momentum is expected to continue in the next few years as large-scale ground-mounted PV projects are underway. [ more ]
  • Owing to Partial Work Resumption and Pre-Chinese New Year Stocking of Components, Chinese Server Shipment to Remain Healthy for Now, Says TrendForce
    02-10-2020 Mark Liu
    The server industry analysis by the DRAMeXchange research division of TrendForce thus far finds that frontline personnel of Chinese server manufacturers will return to work starting from 2/10, while other personnel resumed work on 2/3. Certain Chinese manufacturers resumed operations on 2/3 with government approval. On the whole, the server supply chain recovery has been progressing better than expected. Server manufacturers have traditionally increased capacity and stocked key components up to one month before the Chinese New Year to facilitate smooth shipment after the holidays. As such, major ODMs believe that the coronavirus outbreak will have minimal impact on server shipment in the short term despite the delay in work resumption. If work resumption on 2/10 cannot properly proceed, ODMs will increase their future production correspondingly. [ more ]
  • In Light of the Coronavirus Outbreak’s Impact on Smartphone Supply Chain, 1Q20 Global Production Forecast Revised to 12% Decrease YoY, Says TrendForce
    02-10-2020 TrendForce
    TrendForce’s latest investigation finds that several factors have negatively affected smartphone production: first, the labor-intensive nature of the smartphone industry; second, China’s delay in work resumption until February 10 and population movement control; finally, the reduction in the public’s willingness to buy. Due to the aforementioned factors, TrendForce is lowering its 1Q20 smartphone production forecast to a 12% decrease YoY, at 275 million units produced, which is a five-year low. [ more ]
  • China-based Memory Fabs Continue Normal Operations Currently as Wuhan Coronavirus Has Yet to Impair Global Memory Supply, Says TrendForce
    02-03-2020 TrendForce
    On account of the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak’s impact on the global memory industry, investigations from the DRAMeXchange research division of TrendForce indicate that no DRAM or NAND flash fab in China has closed or partially suspended operations at the present. Hence, the overall production will remain unaffected for DRAM and NAND flash in the short run. In addition, their 1Q20 contract prices have already been set; therefore, TrendForce maintains its previous forecast of a slight QoQ increase in 1Q20 DRAM and NAND flash contract prices. [ more ]

  • Monitor Panel Oversupply in 2020 Means Potential for Price Trend to Mirror 2019 TV Panels, Says TrendForce
    01-15-2020 Anita Wang
    The latest analysis from the WitsView research division of TrendForce shows potential for a small price hike in TV panels under (and including) 65 inches at the end of January, as demand rises and supply falls. In contrast, due to an increase in panel manufacturers’ shipment target and the continued capacity expansion in China, the supply of monitor panels in 2020 is projected to exceed demand by nearly 20%. In the short term, the price drop of monitor panels is unlikely to stop. [ more ]
  • Year-end Release of New Game Consoles to Trigger 2H20 Demand Surge for Graphics DRAM and SSDs, Says TrendForce
    01-15-2020 TrendForce
    As PS4 and Xbox One approach the end of their lifecycles, Sony and Microsoft recently revealed more details about the release schedules of PS5 and Xbox Series X, which will hit the market during the 2020 holiday season. According to the DRAMeXchange research division of TrendForce, the competition between next-gen video game consoles in 2H20 will incite a demand surge for Graphics DRAM and SSDs. [ more ]
  • DRAM Contract Prices to Rise in 1Q20 as Power Outage at Samsung Fab Spurs Demand, Says TrendForce
    01-08-2020 Avril Wu
    According to the latest analysis from the DRAMeXchange research division of TrendForce, the consistent increase in DRAM spot prices since December and the power outage at Samsung’s Hwaseong fab on December 31, 2019 have not seriously impacted the supply side of the DRAM market. But on the demand side, memory buyers have furthered their willingness to build up inventories. Thus, TrendForce is again adjusting the 1Q20 DRAM contract price forecast from “mostly holding steady”, as previously reported, to “slightly trending upward”, indicating an earlier-than-anticipated kickoff of the cyclical upturn.
