In the second quarter of 2020, traditionally the weak season for motherboards, shipment volume of the global motherboard industry amounted to approximately 25.1 million units, up 19.9% sequentially and down 0.2% year-on-year. Affected by the COVID-19, businesses in various countries have implemented Work From Home (WFH) in response to the epidemic prevention policy. At the same time, it has also driven the demand for game players to upgrade their home computer gear. In the past, consumers only replaced processors instead of motherboard to improve PC performance, resulting in weak demand for motherboards. This year, benefited from the work from home business opportunities, the industry has been enjoying strong demand in the second quarter owing to the rollout of many new games in the first half of the year. It is anticipated that shipment volume of the industry will reach 25.5 million units in the third quarter of 2020, up 1.7% sequentially but down 6.4 year-on-year. Several new rollouts from Intel and AMD in terms of CPUs and graphics cards are expected to bolster the momentum of the industry in the second half of the year.
