Mobo manufacturers face slowing revenue growth
DigiTimes has an interesting article
suggesting that Taiwan's motherboard manufacturers have passed their peak. The article examines a long-term decline in revenue growth that seems to be plaguing Taiwan's most prominent motherboard manufacturers. Though motherboard shipments continue to rise, the average selling price of products is falling quickly enough to curtail revenue growth.
The article suggests that motherboard manufacturers may increasingly chase additional revenue streams by branching out into other product categories. Many motherboard manufacturers already produce graphics cards, and more may look to a growing small form factor system market as a potential source of growth.
