Last year recorded record growth in sales of gaming PCs and monitors



Analysts at IDC estimate that 55 million gaming PCs and monitors were sold worldwide in 2020. The indicated value corresponds to an increase in comparison with 2019 by 26.8%. Analysts point out that these are the largest indicators of growth and sales in quantitative terms since the beginning of observations in 2016.

According to IDC, the growth is due to the fact that in the context of the pandemic, people spent more time playing on PCs and consoles.

The largest segment, as in 2019, was gaming laptops. They sold 24.0 million units. The average selling price was $ 1,041. IDC experts predict that 27.9 million laptops will be sold this year at an average price of $ 1,055, and between 2020 and 2025 this segment will grow at an average annual rate of 7.0%, so that in 2025, sales will reach 33. 7 million pieces. The average price will then be $ 1,030.

Desktop PCs sold 16.7 million units in 2020 at an average price of $ 762. Analysts expect 17.5 million units of gaming PCs to be sold this year, and 15.7 million units in 2025. That is, the segment will shrink. On average, the reduction will be 1.2% per year. At the same time, the average price this year will decrease to $ 750, and by 2025 – to $ 721.

As for gaming monitors, 14.3 million units were sold in a year. The average price was $ 338. It is projected to sell 19.7 million gaming monitors this year at an average price of $ 352. In the period from 2020 to 2025, the average annual sales growth in this segment will be 10.5%. If that forecast comes true, 23.5 million devices will be sold in 2025 at an average price of $ 343.
