Laptop’s parts scarcity
Computer industry suffers from fundamental laptops’ parts deficit. The issue is becoming more complicated as this crisis occurs in the midst of busiest quarter of the year, just before the back-to-school sales have started. This year demand for new laptops is bigger than has been predicted; and manufacturers endeavour to keep up.
Various parts deficit are caused by various factors:
1. Laptop batteries deficit is a result of massive laptop batteries recall. Taiwan Simplo Technology Co. Ltd is an independent laptop batteries maker claims that recall of about 10 million laptop batteries due to Sony Corp. lead to laptop batteries short supply since last year. Taiwan Simplo Technology Co. produces about a quarter of all laptop batteries; it is able to provide a steady supply to all existing clients. However it is not going to obtain new contracts because it produces batteries at full capacity.
2. This year laptop makers meet liquid crystal display panels deficit. The LCD delivery for PC manufactures has suffered due to intensive sales of LCD TV sets.
3. Smaller size laptop makers try to overcome small hard disk drives deficit. The HDDs delivery has ceased because HDDs are in demand for laptops and digital music players production.
The number one PC vendor Hewlett-Packard Co. is sure that parts’ deficit will not affect its business. The Company has long term contracts with suppliers; this ensures steady permanent discharge of obligations. Big companies like HP have no serious reason to apprehend supply issues because parts-suppliers prefer their orders to the infrequent orders of smaller PC companies.
The world's biggest contract laptop maker Quanta Computer Inc. doesn't foresee the deficit problems as well. The company has close relationship with laptop parts suppliers to ensure a constant supply of fundamental laptops components. Noting that the laptop market is stronger than expected, Quanta recently reconsidered its laptop shipment target to 28 million units from 24 million units.
