PC sales for the year increased by 55.2%



IDC analysts have prepared the results of the first quarter of 2021 in the “traditional PC” market, which IDC includes desktop and mobile personal computers and workstations. According to analysts’ estimates, 84 million systems of the designated categories were shipped in the quarter. This is 55.2% more than from January to April 2020.

In comparison with the previous quarter, supplies decreased. This is a seasonal decline, but this time it is unusually weak at only 8%. For comparison, the last time the market contracted by about the same extent was in 2012, when the consecutive decline was 7.5%.

Analysts attribute the growth in sales to high demand for computers for gaming, teleworking and learning.

The market leader is Lenovo. It owns 24.3% of the market. A year ago, Lenovo’s share was 23.7%. The second place is taken by HP, whose share increased over the year from 21.7% to 22.9%. Dell is in third place. Its share for the year decreased from 19.4% to 15.4%. This is followed by Apple, and Acer Group closes the top five. Apple’s share for the year increased from 5.8% to 8.0%, Acer’s share – from 6.2% to 7.0%.
