PC Components Price Trend Study
Worldwide Leading IT Providers in USA
When global IT vendors OEMed
their PC or related IT products in Taiwan, components' price elasticity
became very important. This project was intended to provide OEM
buyers clear views on the PC component prices, as well as the
material cost of PC systems. The prices indicated in this study
included the volume purchase prices, and the best-buy prices available
in the Taiwan markets.
components in this study included Monitor, System Core Chips,
Suppot Chips, Video Chips, Hard Disk Drives, Floppy Disk Drivers,
CPU, LCD Flat Panel, Keyboard, Mouse, Printed Circuit Board, AC/DC
Adopters & Power Supply, Battery, CD-ROM, Memory Chips and
Other Memory, down to vendor, model, and spec levels. Provided
prices included current quarter prices and quarterly forecast
up to two years ahead.
This report helped our client save millions
dollars in negotiating with the OEM partners to get better prices.
Our client was very happy with the results, contracted with us
as a new ongoing quarterly project, and covered more components
in the new scope.
