Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Stick PC Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global stick PC market: ARCHOS, ASUSTeK Computer, Azulle, Chenzi, Hannspree, iBall, Intel, Lenovo, MagicStick, Meegopad, MODECOM, and Panache.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Progressive development of digital content will be a key trend for market growth. The popularity of online and blended learning methods has led to the adoption of advanced technologies to aid content development. Teaching methods used in the classroom are undergoing major improvements over the years. Schools and universities are constantly evolving and becoming increasingly sophisticated by harnessing advanced technologies. The introduction of learning management systems (LMSs) and learning content management systems (LCMSs) in the market has made the development of content faster for academicians and education experts.”

According to the report, one of the key drivers for market growth will be low cost advantage of stick PCs. The market expectations are that the lower pricing of stick PCs will drive the volumes, which in turn, will help the manufacturers scale the production and reduce the cost in order to increase their profit margin. As the market is still in its initial stages of industry life cycle, the competition is low and price wars are negligible. This also means that the reducing ASPs will not have any influence on driving the volumes. Following the increased adoption of stick PCs and integration of additional features, vendors might increase the prices of their products.

Further, the report states that need of additional power source will be a challenge for the market. The majority of stick PCs such as compute stick (Intel) need an additional power source to operate. This is one of the disadvantages of stick PCs as it limits their applications and is one of the key factors hindering their adoption among the customers. Although stick PCs consume less than 5 watts to operate, customers often prefer a wireless device. Certain features such as backup and restore functions are not available in stick PCs, which adds to their drawbacks. Furthermore, too many connections to the stick PCs makes them less attractive than laptops and smartphones where connections are limited. The smaller form factor of stick PCs restricts the integration of batteries. This also restricts their applications and portability and, in turn, affects their demand.
