Experts of the analytical company Canalys have summed up the results of the third quarter of 2021 in one of the most important world markets for ready-made PCs – the American one. This market situation reflects the overall picture of the global PC market, which Canalys includes desktops, laptops, tablets and workstations.

In the third quarter of 2021, 30.3 million systems of these categories were sold in the United States, which is 16% less than in the third quarter of 2020.

Notebook shipments totaled 17.1 million units, down 15% year on year. This is due to the sharp drop in Chromebook sales as the education market has reached saturation. Tablet shipments fell 24% to 10.0 million units. Analysts attribute this to a decline in consumer demand. Desktop computers stand out against this background – their shipments grew by 6% and reached 3.2 million units. According to experts, this is due to the return of workers to offices and an increase in purchases in the corporate segment.

Dell was # 1 in the US PC market in the third quarter. It increased sales by 10.4%, which led to an increase in Dell’s share from 22.3% to 27.6%. At the same time, HP, ranked second, reduced sales by 30.7%, which resulted in a decrease in its share from 33.4% to 26.0%. Ranked third, Lenovo increased sales by 2.9%. Its share increased from 15.0% to 17.4%. This is followed by Apple, which reduced sales by 13.7%. Apple’s share fell from 11.9% to 11.6%. Acer closes the top five. It reduced sales by 31.1%, which led to a decrease in its share from 5.6% to 4.4%.
