The PC market has the highest year-on-year growth in ten years

In recent years, the PC market has been on the verge of dying under the pressure of the mobile Internet. Consumers are willing to spend close to $1000 on a smartphone but feel that a $1000 laptop is too expensive.

Not only are consumers saying that, but the data presented by data analysis agencies also show that consumers’ wallets do feel that smartphones are better, and computer sales are declining.

However, what I did not expect was that the sudden outbreak of the coronavirus epidemic this year caused everything to change suddenly. The long-silent PC market was suddenly revamped, and sales continued to rise.

Recently, a data report released by data analysis agency Canalys shows that since the second quarter of this year, the PC market has continued to maintain double-digit growth, and this situation has continued until the third quarter. The PC market has increased by nearly 13% year-on-year, making the first PC sales in the third quarter reached 79.2 million units, which was the highest sales quarter in the PC market in the past ten years.

There is no doubt that this is almost all due to the epidemic. Because of the epidemic, companies in various countries have basically chosen to let their employees work from home, which led to a sudden surge in the sales of notebook computers. In the second quarter, global notebook computer shipments reached 64 million units, which is almost close to the peak of the PC market in 2011 (64.6 million units).

Lenovo regained its sales champion in the third quarter, with Q3 shipments exceeding 19 million, a year-on-year growth rate of 11.4%.

Hewlett-Packard ranked second with 18.66 million shipments, a year-on-year growth rate of 11.9%. The veteran PC manufacturer Dell shipped 11.989 million units, ranking third with a negative growth of 0.5% year-on-year. Apple shipped The volume reached 6.372 million units, a year-on-year growth rate of 13.2%, and Acer’s shipments reached 5.638 million units, a year-on-year increase of 15%.
