MSI shifts production for US-bound shipments back to Taiwan
     Mon, Jun 03 2019 | 5:04P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Micro-Star International (MSI) is moving some of its production back to Taiwan to avoid the impact of the trade war between the world's two biggest economies, with its local facilities now making all graphics cards to be shipped to the US, according to company president SC Chiang.

Chiang said that a small volume of motherboards are now made in Taiwan, and its local capacity for notebook production has increased to 25,000 units monthly from 1,000 units, with inventory in the US able to last for 2.5-3 months.

The US market contributes roughly 25% of MSI's annual revenues, prompting the company to step up relocating production lines of related products to mitigate impacts of the 25% tariffs the US may levy on China-made notebooks and motherboards in the near future, Chiang said."

DIY market may shrink further due to US-China trade tensions
     Fri, May 17 2019 | 3:19P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Digitimes reports: "Motherboard makers have experienced sluggish demand coming from the PC DIY market, which is likely to shrink further as the US-China trade dispute escalates, according to industry sources.

The PC DIY market has seen weak replacement demand, particularly in China, while shortages of Intel's entry-level to mid-range processors remain an issue.

With the cryptocurrency mining fad dissipating, most motherboard and graphics card players have seen their revenues returning to regular levels. But those who heavily rely on the two business segments have reported sharp drops in sales for the first quarter.

With the US government threatening to extend the 25% tariff to consumer products including notebooks and smartphones, Taiwan's motherboard and graphics card players noted that the impact on their businesses will not be big since they have already increased the prices for products shipping to the US previously when the US increased the tariff to 10%. They have also prepared production sites outside of China as a precaution.

As for China's 25% retaliatory tariff on US-imported products, the firms so far have not seen major impacts.

However, fierce trade tensions are expected to result in weakening demand from the end market. China is especially important as the popularity of the country's PC DIY market is far strong than that of the US.

For motherboards, nearly half of the worldwide shipments go to China and if demand continues falling, Taiwan suppliers' sales in 2019 are expected to be severely undermined.

At the moment, the China market accounts for big portions of the motherboard businesses of Asustek Computer and Gigabyte Technology, but the proportions are relatively low for Micro-Star International (MSI), ASRock and Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS).

MSI has reported consolidated revenues of NT$29.49 billion (US$939.26 million) for the first quarter of 2019, down 0.9% sequentially and 7.2% on year. The company achieved EPS of NT$1.55 for the quarter, weaker than NT$2.49 of the same quarter a year ago, but higher than fourth-quarter-2018's NT$0.80."

In case you missed it... using design to improve conversions
     Tue, Feb 26 2019 | 5:42P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

In this day and age it's not uncommon to have one or two side jobs in the evenings. Maybe you're clearing out the clutter with FB marketplace, drawing comics for IG and selling books or stickers, promoting your bands' next show or running an online shop that sells your hand made stuff. Like it or not, having a couple jobs is the new norm. Making that second job worthwhile is a tricky endeavor though... It really helps to have a group of peers to lean on, to learn what worked and what didn't, so you can fine tune things.

Case in point: this short article from a designer on how to use conditional logic, visual consistency and little bit of design to improve trust between you and your audience. It's a real-world case study from an advertising perspective, so don't let that scare you. It makes the points, backs them up with numbers and gives you a couple insights you probably never even considered. Think of it as a mini TED talk of the day and I think you'll find it enlightening.

Using design to fine tune your business is sort of like this gent I photographed in Taipei during Computex, he's taking a personalized approach to no-parking outside his apartment building.
