Defunct[edit]

No longer manufactures computers[edit]

Original design manufacturers (ODMs)[edit]

The vast majority of laptops on the market (94% in 2011) are manufactured by a small handful of Taiwan-based Original Design Manufacturers (ODM), although their production bases are located mostly in mainland China.[2]

Major relationships include:[3]

  • Quanta sells to (among others) HP, Lenovo, Apple, Acer, Toshiba, Dell, Sony, Fujitsu and NEC
  • Compal sells to (among others) Acer, Dell, Toshiba, Lenovo and HP/Compaq
  • Wistron (former manufacturing & design division of Acer) sells to Dell, Acer, Lenovo and HP
  • Inventec sells to Toshiba, HP, Dell and Lenovo
  • Pegatron sells to Asus, Toshiba, Apple, Dell and Acer
  • Foxconn sells to Asus, Dell, HP and Apple
  • Flextronics (former Arima Computer Corporation notebook division) sells to HP

ODM laptop units sold and market shares[edit]

Year 2014[4] 2013[5] 2012[6] 2011[7] 2010[3][8] 2009[9][10] 2006[10]
Compal 43.0 46.0 37.8 55.7 48.2 37.9,0 26% 15,0 21%
Quanta 48.5 43.1 53.8 54.0 52.1 35.9,0 25% 24,0 33%
Wistron 21.1 24.0 31.5 31.5 27.5 26.2[11] 18% 11,0 15%
Inventec 18.6 20.9 16.8 17.0 16.2 21,0[12] 15% 7,0 10%
Pegatron,[13] until 2007 Asus[14] 9.8 14.0 18.5 17.5 15.5 10.9,0 8% 5,0 7%
Foxconn[13] N/A N/A N/A 18.4 10.0 7.2,0 5%
Flextronics N/A N/A N/A 5.0 4.3 7.2,0 5%
Elitegroup[13] 3.6,0 2%
others N/A N/A N/A 15.0 10.0 11,0 15%
total N/A N/A 194[15] 214 203[16] 125,0[12] 100 % 72.6 100 %

There is a discrepancy between the 2009 numbers due to the various sources cited; i.e. the units sold by all ODMs add up to 144.3 million laptops, which is much more than the given total of 125 million laptops. The market share percentages currently refer to those 144.3 million total. Sources may indicate hard drive deliveries to the ODM instead of actual laptop sales, though the two numbers may be closely correlated.
