A total of 3.9 million units were shipped in the quarter.
The PC market that includes desktops, notebooks, and workstations showed a decline of 11.7% YoY in 3Q22 (Jul-Sep). Despite strong shipments of 3.9 million units, this decline was seen after eight consecutive quarters of growth. As per IDC’s report, all segments declined except the government, which grew by 91.5% YoY. While the desktop and workstation categories grew by 23.4% and 17.6% YoY respectively, the notebook category declined by 19.5% YoY.
Bharath Shenoy, Senior Market Analyst, IDC India said, “With schools and colleges opening, the consumer segment is seeing tapering demand for the past few months as demand for remote learning has come to a standstill. Weakened currency is resulting in rising device costs and pricing pressure for vendors. As the online sales were going on, vendors delayed price increases in Q3, but the discounts weren’t as lucrative as in previous years either. Vendors are expected to increase prices in Q4, which might further dampen sentiment.”
HP Inc. shipped over 940,000 units and continued to lead the overall PC market with a share of 23.9% in 3Q22; followed by Lenovo in the second position holding an 18.8% share. Dell Technologies moved to the third position while Acer Group continued to hold the fourth position with a share of 10.9%. ASUS maintained its fifth position with a share of 9.9%, much higher than the 8.5% share it had in 3Q21.
