Lack Of Components Could Impact Notebook PC Output

Taiwan-based analyst firm Digitimes Research reported Monday that, while notebook PC manufacturers have resumed production in China, a shortfall in component production resulting from the coronavirus outbreak could short-circuit notebook PC production if workers are not able to return to work at the factories.

Several China-based component suppliers are still waiting for local government approval to re-open their plants, Digitimes reported.

Because over 90 percent of global notebook PC production is centered in China, the coronavirus outbreak and the subsequent labor and component shortages could cause first quarter 2020 global notebook PC sales to fall sequentially by 29 percent to 36 percent, as opposed to early projections of a 17-percent sequential fall, Digitimes reported.

In response, Taiwan-based notebook PC vendors including Quanta are working to move part of their China-based production to Taiwan, Digitimes said.
