Intel’s second 3-month performance report was mainly focused on financial issues; Therefore, it will not be easy to understand the number of products sold by the company based on the changes in its income levels. Intel does not publish actual quantitative metrics; However, it provides explanations regarding the relative changes of the indices during the last 3 months. Intel’s report indicates a significant decrease in the company’s revenue from the sale of laptop hardware.
More detailed statistics are available in the 10-Q report form published on Intel’s official website. As a reminder, it should be noted that the company’s revenue in the customer sector decreased during the second 3 months of 2022 and reached 7.7 billion dollars from 10.3 billion dollars. Of this revenue, $4.8 billion is related to laptop components and $2.3 billion is related to desktop system components. The amount of income reduction in the notebook and desktop sector has decreased by 29 and 18 percent, respectively. In both cases, the changes in the transfer of the respective parts in terms of number worsened at a faster rate.
Therefore, the number of laptop parts sent during the second 3 months of 2022 decreased by 36% compared to the same period last year. According to Intel, this phenomenon is caused by the decrease in demand in the consumer and educational fields. At the same time, the average selling price of an Intel laptop part increased by 13% during the second 3 months of this year; Because the number of parts sold by Intel to the commercial sector was much higher compared to the educational and consumer sectors. It seems that Intel’s focus on the commercial sector will allow this company to partially compensate for the problem of reducing the supply of components. The amount of parts sold to consumer and educational sectors decreased by 38%; While the income from the sale of parts experienced a drop of only 29%.
In the desktop parts sector, the transfer rate of products decreased by 19%; While the company’s income from this area dropped by 18%. Also, the average selling price of Intel production parts increased by 1%. This time, the lower demand in the education sector made the company record similar results.
According to Intel’s announcement, the decrease in demand for the company’s components in both mobile and desktop product segments during the second quarter of 2022 is due to the fact that PC manufacturers and component suppliers were forced to work with more inventory than usual. . As a result, these companies did not consider the purchase of new parts and products very logical.
Considering the first 6 months of 2022, the number of parts sold by Intel for laptops has decreased by 36%. In the desktop products sector, this reduction is equivalent to 15%. The average selling price of laptop parts increased by 23% during this period; While the price increase rate for desktop products was only 4%. Intel’s better performance in the desktop product segment was due to the company’s focus on the needs of business segments. In the mobile products sector, the relative increase in demand for consumer laptops with more expensive processors helped to generate better income for Intel.
