Gartner, IDC: PC Shipments In Decline For Q1 2016By cheatmaster 07:53 Sun, 01 Aug 2021 Comments
IDC has released Personal Computer (PC) shipment data for the first quarter of the year and the numbers show the market is still in decline. For the period worldwide Personal Computer (PC) shipments totaled 60.6 million units, a year-on-year decline of 11.5%. IDC says the decline is due to the early phases of Windows 10 enterprise upgrades as well as weak consumer demand.
Gartner also reports similar information for the decline of the Personal Computer (PC) market, but with a slightly less dramatic 9.5% fall. This is the sixth consecutive quarter in which Personal Computer (PC) sales are plummeting.
Among the main culprits for the descend of Personal Computer (PC) sales are the soaring smartphone market. Still, Lenovo, Hewlett Packard (HP) and Dell remain at the top of the Personal Computer (PC) vendor market for last quarter.
Here's some raw data from both companies.

The future may not be that poor if both Gartner and IDC predictions come true. Thanks to Windows 10 consumers are believed to be tempted to change or upgrade their existing PC. However, we'll have to wait for the second half of the year to check if these predictions hrecent any water.
