Compal Electronics Inc (仁寶), the world’s No. 2 contract notebook
computer maker, yesterday said it expects its total shipments to grow more than 10 percent year-on-year to 90 million units this year, driven by growing demand for non-notebook products.
“The non-notebook segment is definitely going to contribute more than 30 percent revenue this year, compared with last year’s contribution of 26 percent,” Compal president Ray Chen (陳瑞聰) told a press conference before the firm’s annual weiya (尾牙) banquet for its employees at the Nangang Exhibition Hall in Taipei.
He said shipments from new business units, such as servers, wearable products and Internet of Things products, would grow significantly to 5.6 million units from last year’s about 1 million units. [FULL STORY]
