Continuing the trend of the fourth quarter last year, the market demand for epidemic prevention, such as WFH/SFH business opportunity and stay-at-home economy, is still quite strong in the first two months of this year, driving e-sports/gaming, tablets, video, cloud and other products to continue to increase significantly. Telecom products grew 21% due to the wave of 5G mobile phone replacement. IC components also increased by 71% due to the factory's non-stop work during the Chinese New Year and active inventory by manufacturers, setting a record high over the same period.
