89% of notebooks shipped in<br>Q3 are from Taiwan

89% of the 29 million notebook PCs shipped in Q3’07 were made by Taiwanese OEMs, DisplaySearch reports.
This sets a new record high, up from 85% in Q2’07, 80% in Q1’07 and 87% in Q4’06. Many notebook PC brands outsourced 100% of their core notebook PC barebones assembly to subcontract manufacturers, including HP, Dell, Apple and Acer Gateway. Some brands like Toshiba, Sony and Fujitsu insist on maintaining some in-house assembly.

Among Taiwanese OEMs, Quanta is the leading manufacturer with a 34% market share on a unit basis, followed by 24% at Compal, and 13% at Wistron. LCD panels are consigned by notebook PC brands and then shipped to the OEM for assembly. HP is the top notebook LCD panel customer for Samsung, LPL and AUO.
