PC Shipments Decline, But Gartner Sees Signs of Recovery

Global personal computer shipments experienced a significant decline of 9% in the third quarter, marking what analysts at Gartner Inc. believe to be the nadir in a two-year-long market slump.

Among major PC manufacturers, Apple Inc. recorded the most substantial drop, with a 24% decrease in shipments compared to the same quarter in the previous year.

In contrast, HP Inc. was the sole vendor to show growth, with a 6.4% increase during the July-September period, as revealed by Gartner in press release on 9th October.

After eight consecutive quarters of decline, there are signs that the PC market's downward trend has finally reached a plateau, according to Mikako Kitagawa, a Gartner analyst.

The corporate sector may be entering a new purchasing cycle, driven by Microsoft's Windows 11 software upgrades, while consumers may be looking to replace PCs acquired earlier in the pandemic.

PC vendors could see a turnaround starting from 2024, as claimed by Gartner analyst.
