Per the latest IDC analysis, the PC market it dawned on better times. Global deliveries for Q1/2017 reached 60.3 million units, increase 0.6% from last Q1/2016
Although an increase of 0.6% is too small and we can say that the market can only keep the volume of supplies from last year.
IDC analysts opinion that a similar trend in the PC market may continue in the future. In the segment of corporate or business computers it is coming true untwisted cycle replacement of equipment.
The consumer PCs is admittedly difficult situation, but is expected to increase for the gaming devices (eg equipped with new graphics) as well as the market for tablets and smartphone is becoming more saturated – it gives a chance to the computer, especially if you offer attractive features (and price).
Computers do not definitely won. IDC points out that the PC market in the United States recorded the first three months of this year (slight) decline.
Perhaps more interesting change occurred, looking at the ranking of individual manufacturers. In the first place it had changed from Lenovo group to HP, which has led in recent quarters. It’s first time since the Q1 of 2013, HP jumped in the first place because HP has growth more 13% but others in top 5 have growth just in single digit, HP 1.7%, Dell 6.2%, Apple 4.1% and Acer 2.9%.
However, all top 5 computer manufacturers still have growth but rest manufactures are declined -11.4%.
