A study by analyst firm Canalys shows that in the second quarter of 2022, due to the ongoing decline in education purchases, compared to the same period last year, laptop shipments decreased by 18.6%. up to 54.5 million units. Mobile PC shipments have been declining for three consecutive quarters.
The report notes that in the second quarter of 2022, many of the world’s largest personal computer markets faced huge inflationary pressures that could not be effectively contained, leading to a decline in demand, especially from the consumer sector.
The top five global laptop vendors in Q2 2022 include Lenovo with 24% of the market, HP with 18%, Dell (17%), Asus (8%) and Acer (8%).
In the mainland China market, the top five are Lenovo (37%), Dell (11%), Huawei (10%), Asus (9%) and HP (7%).

The device is about 12mm thick and features a 13.3-inch OLED touchscreen with a resolution of 2880 x 1800 pixels. Thanks to the 360° dual hinge design, users can change the shape of the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air 13 as they wish.

Laptop shipments collapsed in October by 40% – no demand
According to DigiTimes Research, the cumulative shipments of the five major laptop manufacturers (not including Apple) in October decreased by 13% compared to the previous month and by almost 40% in annual terms. Analysts note that the reduction in demand from ordinary users, enterprises and educational institutions is to blame.
If we talk about the market structure, then Lenovo is the leader in terms of deliveries, although the advantage over HP is small (alas, specific figures are not given). Dell, in third place, is the only company that managed to increase the volume of shipments, but everything is very relative here: plus only because of the comparison with the low base of September, when demand in the corporate sector sank badly.
And most of all in October, Acer and Asus reduced deliveries: each by more than 20% compared to September. But there is nothing to do with enterprises or the educational sector: the deliveries of these two companies sank due to weak consumer demand.
Analysts note that the combined shipments of Taiwan’s top three contract notebook manufacturers fell 13% in October from September. Separately, it is noted that the supply of Quanta, which is responsible for assembling the MacBook, has fallen sharply.
