Acer, ASUS, and HP Lead Netbook and CULV Notebook Growth in 2010

Market research company iSuppli is reporting that notebook shipments are expected to post double-digit growth in 2010.  This growth is expected because of increased shipments for netbooks and Consumer Ultra-Low Voltage (or CULV) notebooks.

Overall in 2010, 209.5 million units of notebook PCs will be shipped, which is 25.5% higher than the amount of notebooks shipped the previous year.  The netbook category itself is expected to have 34.5 million shipments in 2010, a 30% increase from the previous year.  Four years from now in 2014, netbook shipments are expected to hit a whopping 58.3 units!  CULV notebooks are expected to have 14.5 million units shipped in 2010, which is a 93% increase from last year’s 7.5 million units.

Taiwan-based netbook manufacturer Acer leads the pack in netbook shipments; it has been the market leader for two years and holds 37% of the market.  ASUS, also Taiwan-based, currently ships 5.5 million netbook units and holds 21% of the market.  Hewlett-Packard, Samsung, and Dell are third, fourth, and fifth in netbook shipments.  These top five netbook manufacturers make up 90% of the market.
