Counterpoint Technology Market Research has released statistics on the global personal computer (PC) market for the second quarter of this year: sales have declined significantly.
From April through June 71.2 million desktops and laptops were sold worldwide. This is 11.1% less than in the second quarter of the previous year. According to analysts, this was the strongest decline since the second quarter of 2013.
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.
In second place is HP, which controls about 18.8% of the industry. This company sold 13.4 million PCs last quarter, up from 18.4 million last year.
Dell closes out the top 3 with a score of 18.4%. The company’s annual shipments fell from 13.8 million to 13.1 million computers.
