This research report presents shipment volume and value forecasts and recent quarter review of the Taiwanese server system and server motherboard industries. The report includes server full system and barebones and server motherboard shipment volume, shipment value, ASP, volume and share by maker, by price point, and manufacturer volume ranking. The report analyzes shipment by CPU architecture and CPU count. Production locations, shipment destinations, business types, and customer portfolios are also examined. The content of this report is based on primary data obtained through interviews with server makers. The report finds that shipment volume of the Taiwanese server system and motherboard industries increased 4.5% in the second quarter compared to the first one, reaching 1.97 million units, fueled by the increasing demand of end-market users for cheaper DDR4 platforms. The high level of diversification however will increase server makers' major global challenges. In the third quarter of 2015, traditionally a peak season for servers, coupled with ongoing conversion of Grantley platform, the industry is anticipated to have grown 4.3% sequentially to 2.05 million units.
