The observed pattern is explained by a number of factors. In particular, these are restrictions in China related to the ongoing pandemic. In addition, the current geopolitical situation and high inflation are having a negative impact on the industry.

Lenovo remains the world market leader with a share of around 24.4%. At the same time, the Chinese company’s deliveries for the year fell to 17.4 million units from 19.9 million.
