This research report presents industry size and value forecast and recent quarter review of the worldwide motherboard industry. The report includes shipment volume and value, shipment breakdowns by maker, ASP, and price trends. The report also examines manufacturer rankings, assembly levels, CPU connector adoption, production locations, shipment destinations, and business types, and provides assembly level breakdown for CPU types, production locations, shipment destinations, and business types. The content of this report is based on primary data obtained through interviews with motherboard makers. The report finds that worldwide motherboard shipment volume continued to fall 8.6% sequentially to around 31.7 million units in the first quarter of 2015, due to channel distributors revising downwards safety stock levels. Second- and third-tier motherboard vendors are more vulnerable to the impact as they do not have as much influence over distributors as first tier vendors do. Advertising of Microsoft's to-be-released Windows 10 failed to spark significant sales as the campaign has lost its freshness. Therefore, it is projected that the worldwide motherboard shipment volume will have dropped 1.4% sequentially to arrive at 31.3 million units in the second quarter of 2015.
