Growth of 4.8% in 2020 according to Gartner and 13.1% according to IDC, with 275 million and 303 million units respectively delivered worldwide. The growth figures differ, but the two firms share the same observation. Such a level of growth had not been seen since 2010 for the PC market.
In its analysis of the PC (or computer) market, Gartner does not take the Chromebook into account, unlike IDC. Nonetheless, Gartner points out that sales for the Chromebook rose 80% in 2020, reaching a total of almost 30 million units. They are largely driven by demand in education across the Atlantic.
In the ranking of manufacturers, the podium is made up of Lenovo, which is credited with a global market share of around 24%, ahead of HP (22%) and Dell (16%). Ranked fourth with a market share close to 8% in 2020, Apple is the manufacturer with the strongest growth in the world Top.
The computer is back on trend thanks to the pandemic
For IDC, demand is pushing the PC market and it should continue to be there. PC sales were boosted by the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic, with the explosion of telecommuting and distance education. However, the firm insists that the strength of the consumer market should not be neglected.
Gartner writes that before 2020, consumers tended to favor smartphones, but the pandemic has reversed that trend. ” PCs have resurfaced as an essential device as consumers, including young children, rely on them to work, study, socialize and play from their homes. “
