Consumer product has been falling, more or less, into commodity category. The margin becomes really low. With the competition from China and Taiwan, it has been squeezed more. Going after enterprise and industrial makes more sense to the size of these companies. Only by cooperation and leveraging the strength of each other, they will be able to break out and, create a new and better market in the future.
