PC Sales Flatten

Gartner Technology, a US-based research company, has reported their worldwide PC shipment numbers. According to the company, PC shipments totaled 68.4 million units in the second quarter of 2015, a 9.5% decline from the second quarter of 2014. Gartner suspects that PC market going down is a temporary event and the market is expected to go back to slow and steady growth in 2016.
"The price hike of PCs became more apparent in some regions due to a sharp appreciation of the US dollar against local currencies,” Mikako Kitagawa, principal analyst at Gartner.
"The price hike could hinder PC demand in these regions. Secondly, the worldwide PC market experienced unusually positive desk-based growth last year due to the end of Windows XP support. After the XP impact was phased out, there have not been any major growth drivers to stimulate a PC refresh. Lastly, the Windows 10 launch scheduled for 3Q15 has created self-regulated inventory control. PC vendors and the channels tried clearing inventory as much as possible before the Windows 10 launch.”
Lenovo maintained the top position in worldwide PC shipments in the second quarter of 2015.
