According to IDC shipments of personal computers declined by 15.3 percent in the second quarter of 2022, while Lenovo ranks top

The global research firm, IDC states the shipment of personal computers has collapsed and continues to downfall year over year. Even in the Q2 of 2022, there are only 71.3 million traditional PCs shipped which means the sales are essentially low.

The experts predicted that the drop was mainly due to the supply issues and logistics since the coronavirus pandemic caused lockdowns in several parts of the world along with continuous macroeconomic crises such as inflation, war, etc. According to International Data Corporation (IDC)’s mobile tracker research manager, Jitesh Ubrani, consumers aren’t likely to buy PCs shortly because people have become more aware of their expenses and again grow habitual with smartphones and tabs. But the good news is that the decrease in shipments occurs following a successful year when computer sales surge by the huge turnout of remote jobs. IDC analysts forecast that the shipment will get back to normal growth by the year 2023.

Additionally, the total PC volume in Q2 of 2020 was 74.3 million, which still corresponds with the current year's volume. While the PC volume in 2018 and 2019 was 62.1 million and 65.1 million which is lower than the Q2 of 2022. It means the market for traditional PCs still stands high in the pre-pandemic years. As per the IDC report, the position of the top three brands remains constant while Apple slips to the fifth position. Among the top five companies, Lenovo beats HP Inc. and retains first place with a record of 17.5 million shipments, holding 23.7 percent of the market share. HP. Inc. got 13.5 million shipments with a 22.1 percent market share, standing in second place. A considerable drop was noticed by HP, as the PC sales fell from 18.6 million to 13.5 million units. The third and fourth positions were occupied by Ditch and Acer holding 16.6 percent and 7.3 percent market share respectively. As I said earlier, Apple slips to fifth with a 7.3 percent market share along with 4.8 million shipments worldwide.
