market research firm Gartner Report It has been said that PC demand has reduced in both consumer and enterprise segments due to the return of people to the office and the reopening of schools. Gartner analyst Mikako Kitagawa said, “With the removal of supply chain bottlenecks, weak demand for PCs in both the consumer and enterprise segments has made excess inventory a major problem.” Many consumers had bought new personal computers in the last two years and due to this the demand in this segment is weak. Due to the tension between some countries and the weakening of economic conditions, companies have reduced the expenditure on IT and their priority does not include PC.
Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) saw the biggest decline of 26.4 per cent in the September quarter. This is the third consecutive quarter of sales decline in the region. Weakening economic conditions in Europe and the war between Ukraine and Russia are impacting demand. Gartner says that in the first two quarters of this year, many PC vendors closed their business in Russia. This has had a negative impact on total shipments and is visible in comparison on a year-over-year basis. PC sales in Asia Pacific declined by 16.6 percent year-on-year. The major reason for this is the lockdown due to the epidemic in many cities of China. This has slowed down the business of companies and reduced the demand for personal computers in consumer, government and enterprise segments.
Dell ranked first in the PC market in terms of total PC shipments. Its market share was 26.8 percent. It was followed by HP (about 23.2 percent), Apple (16 percent) and Lenovo (about 15.8 percent). Dell’s laptop shipments decreased in all regions except Japan. However, its desktop shipments grew on a year-on-year basis in all regions except Asia Pacific.
