Vendas de processadores para PCs crescem 16,1% no segundo trimestre

SÃO PAULO - O número de unidades de processadores para computadores vendidas no segundo trimestre cresceu 16,1% ante igual período do ano passado e 3,1% na comparação com os primeiros três meses do ano. Apesar da preocupação com a economia dos EUA, que se espalha por outras regiões do mundo, e do fato de que o segundo trimestre é tipicamente o mais fraco do ano, o desempenho do setor atingiu novo recorde, afirma a consultoria IDC.

Ainda assim, o faturamento do setor recuou 4,5% entre o primeiro e o segundo trimestres do ano, para US$ 7,7 bilhões. Isso ocorreu principalmente por conta da forte competição entre fabricantes nos segmentos de chips para PCs de mesa (desktops) e notebooks de baixo e médio preços.

Embora o crescimento seqüencial do mercado seja incomum no segundo trimestre, é evidente que nesse período deste ano as vendas de processadores da Intel determinaram a expansão, afirmou o diretor de pesquisa em Semicondutores para Computação Pessoal do IDC, Shane Rau. As vendas de processadores da Intel sozinhas aumentaram 4,3% ante o primeiro trimestre e 20,8% em relação ao mesmo período do ano passado, enquanto as vendas de chips da AMD permaneceram praticamente estáveis, acrescentou.

Entre abril e junho, a Intel obteve 79,7% de participação no mercado mundial de chips, 0,9 ponto percentual a mais que no trimestre anterior. Já a AMD registrou queda de 1,2 ponto percentual, para 19,7% de participação.

Considerando apenas o segmento de chips para notebooks, a Intel apresentou ganho de fatia de 1,3 ponto percentual, para 86,5% do mercado. Já a AMD perdeu 1,9 ponto percentual, indo a 12,6%. A VIA Technologies, por sua vez, fechou o período com participação de 0,9%, um ganho de 0,7 ponto percentual.

No mercado de processadores para servidores, a Intel perdeu 0,8 ponto percentual, fechando o segundo trimestre com fatia de mercado de 86,2%. A AMD, por sua vez, cresceu os mesmos 0,8 percentual no período, chegando a uma participação de 13,8%. Já no segmento de desktops, ambas companhias tiveram variação insignificante e encerraram junho com fatias de 73,3% no caso da Intel e de 26,4% no da AMD.

O IDC ainda afirmou que prevê que o faturamento do setor de chips para PCs vá aumentar 7,5% neste ano, superando a casa dos US$ 32,8 bilhões. Ainda assim, preocupações econômicas nos levam a manter nossa expectativa conservadora em relação à segunda metade do ano, afirmou Rau.

Defying Seasonal Demand Patterns, Worldwide PC Processor Market Hits Record Levels of Unit Shipments Again in 2Q08, According to IDC
15 Aug 2008
Intel Mobile PC Processor Shipments Exceed Desktop PC Processor Shipments for First Time
SAN MATEO, Calif., August 15, 2008 - Worldwide PC microprocessor shipments in the second calendar quarter of 2008 (2Q08) reached record levels again, according to new data from IDC. Despite the fact that the second quarter is typically the slowest quarter of the calendar year for processor demand and concerns that the economic woes in the U.S. are spreading to other regions, worldwide processor unit shipments grew 3.1% quarter over quarter and 16.1% year over year. Strong vendor price competition in the middle and low end of the desktop PC processor and mobile PC processor market segments caused overall market revenue to decline 4.5% quarter over quarter to $7.7 billion.

While sequential market growth is unusual in the second quarter of the calendar year, it ? s clear that, in 2Q08, Intel ? s processor shipments drove the growth, said Shane Rau, director of Semiconductors: Personal Computing research at IDC. Intel ? s processor shipments alone grew nearly 4.3% over the first quarter and 20.8% year over year, while AMD ? s processor shipments were about flat.

Vendor Highlights
In terms of processor vendor shares, on an overall unit basis, Intel earned 79.7% market share, a gain of 0.9%. AMD earned 19.7%, a loss of 1.2%.

By form factor, in the mobile PC processor segment, Intel earned 86.5% share, a gain of 1.3% and AMD earned 12.6%, a loss of 1.9%. VIA Technologies, based in Taiwan, earned 0.9% share, a gain of 0.7%. In the PC server/workstation processor segment, Intel earned 86.2%, a loss of 0.8% and AMD earned 13.8%, a gain of 0.8%. In the desktop PC processor segment, Intel earned 73.3% share and AMD earned 26.4%; share changes were negligible.

Market Outlook
IDC forecasts that PC processor market revenue will grow 7.5% in 2008 to more than $32.8 billion. While processor unit shipments exceeded our forecast in 2Q08, Intel ? s aggressive approach to the market, through both product and pricing, point to a major, supply-side variable. However, economic concerns cause us to maintain our conservative outlook for the second half of the year.

IDC ? s forthcoming study, Worldwide PC Processor 2Q08 Vendor Shares, provides the worldwide market and vendor share results for PC processor vendors on an overall unit and revenue basis and by form factor (desktop, mobile, and PC server).
