2023 forecast on noetbook business growthGlobal notebook shipments reached 33.9 million units in 1Q23 — a 13 percent QoQ and 39 percent YoY decline, TrendForce¬†research reveals.

The drop in notebook shipments is primarily due to the impact of economic headwinds on consumer market confidence, which has hindered notebook channels as they destock.

Notebook brands have reduced ODM orders in an attempt to regulate inventory pressure, with this pressure on notebooks and their components expecting to be eased in 2Q23 as channels increase demand MoM. TrendForce predicts this will drive 2Q23 notebook shipments to 37.63 million units, an 11 percent QoQ increase but a 17.7 percent YoY decline.
