  • 2019 Gaming Monitor Shipment Reaches 57% Growth YoY, While Curved Monitors Take 60% Market Share, Says TrendForce
    01-02-2020 Anita Wang
    According to the latest research from the WitsView research division of TrendForce, the 2019 shipment of gaming monitors (defined by WitsView as monitors with frame rate over 100Hz) is estimated at up to 8.5 million units, a 57% growth YoY, compared to 2018 figures. With the diversification of panel types and monitor models from different brands, the growth momentum of this industry is expected to continue well into the next few years, with projected shipment of 11-12 million units in 2020.

  • Owing to Seasonal Headwinds and Constricted Supply, 1Q20 NAND Flash Price Is Projected to Continue Rising, Says TrendForce
    01-02-2020 TrendForce
    According to the latest analysis by the DRAMeXchange research division of TrendForce, the contract price of client SSD has fallen for seven consecutive quarters until 2Q19 from peak price, to barely above the price of HDD. As a result of this price decrease, the share of SSD, along with their capacity, used in notebook computers has risen since 2Q19. On the supply side, the June 15 power outage at the Yokkaichi fab jointly operated by Kioxia and WDC forced the two companies to reduce their NAND production, in turn halting the price drop of eMMC/UFS and SSD products in 3Q19. On the other hand, there was a sharp uptick in the wafer market leading to a 20% increase in 3Q19 wafer prices. As well, the contract prices of eMMC/UFS and SSD made a strong recovery in 4Q19.

  • As Competitiveness of High-end TV with Mini LED Backlighting Rises, Panel Manufacturers Rush to Develop Active Matrix Technology, Says TrendForce
    12-30-2019 Julian Lee
    The increase in die bonding efficiency, the decrease in Mini LED chip cost, and the historical low of open cell prices all contributed to the significantly lowered costs of displays utilizing Mini LED backlighting. According to the New Display Technology Cost Analysis quarterly report from the WitsView research division of TrendForce, Mini LED backlighting has significantly lowered the cost of display modules used in 65-inch 4K TVs. These display modules are estimated to see approximately 5-10% cost reductions compared to 2018 costs. This is expected to accelerate the widespread adoption of Mini LED. [ more ]
  • As 8K Grows in Popularity, LED Ultra-Fine Pitch Display Market to Reach 58% CAGR in 2019-2023, Says TrendForce
    12-27-2019 TrendForce
    According to the latest report by the LEDinside research division of TrendForce, titled 2020 Global LED Video Wall Market Outlook – Meeting Room, Sales Channel and Price Trend, the demand for displays with high resolution and HDR capabilities has skyrocketed; thus, the LED fine pitch display (pixel pitch ≤ P2.5) market is expected to reach 27% CAGR in the 2019-2023 period. On the other hand, ultra-fine pitch displays have more momentum for growth because of their lower shipment numbers at the present. The ultra-fine pitch display (pixel pitch ≤ P1.1) market is therefore projected to reach 58% CAGR. [ more ]
  • As Supply Adjustments Struggle to Keep Up with Demand Growth, 1Q20 Graphics DRAM Price Sees Sharp Upturn, Says TrendForce
    12-26-2019 Avril Wu
    According to the newest analysis from the DRAMeXchange research division of TrendForce, server DRAM prices are expected to lead the uptrend in 1Q20 DRAM prices because the supply has been constrained by unstable yield rates of 1Xnm processes. Also, Graphics DRAM prices will see a corresponding sharp rebound. Graphics DRAM is more sensitive to demand change than other types of memory products, so its price fluctuations can be dramatic as well. With OEM clients raising their stock-up demand, Graphics DRAM contract prices are projected to increase by over 5% QoQ, the highest among all memory products. [ more ]
  • Yearly Server Shipment Remains Identical from 2018 to 2019, with Data Center Demands Driving Market Resurgence, Says TrendForce
    12-23-2019 Mark Liu
    According to the DRAMeXchange research division of TrendForce, the global server market has slowed its growth in 2019 in light of factors such as the current global trade situation and the shift of ODM production lines. However, as the China-U.S. trade relations improved in 2H19, market demand also returned to form, with data centers being the main driver of market growth. [ more ]
  • Growth for 2020 Taiwanese Solar Energy Market Positive, as Feed-in Tariff Stabilizes, Says TrendForce
    12-18-2019 Sharon Chen
    Since its domestic grid connections crossed the gigawatt mark in 2018, the Taiwanese solar energy market has come under international scrutiny, as the local government actively executes its two-year solar development program. The latest analysis from the EnergyTrend research division of TrendForce shows that cumulative PV installations in Taiwan reached 3.8GW in September 2019; the adjustments made in the 2020 draft of feed-in tariffs (FIT) are expected to help Taiwan achieve its goal of 6.5GW cumulative PV installations in 2020.

  • As Spot Prices See Sharp Upturn, 1Q20 DRAM Contract Prices Stop Falling, Says TrendForce
    12-16-2019 Avril Wu
    According to the latest analysis of TrendForce’s DRAMeXchange research division, DRAM spot prices have begun to rebound, in turn improving the overall DRAM market sentiment, and memory component buyers in the contract market will be induced to raise their inventories as well. Contract prices are expected to rally as early as 1Q20. [ more ]
