Global PC Shipments Down 15.5% in Q3

According to market research firm Counterpoint, global PC shipments have shrunk by

third quarter by 15.5% to 71.1 million units. This decline continues the large sales contraction that began in the second quarter of this year. The decline in the last quarter is associated with weak demand in the consumer market and a decrease in purchases in the commercial segment. At the same time, it is emphasized that the supply of personal computers in the second half of this year will remain at a higher level than it was in the pre-pandemic period. The only market player out of the top five to maintain positive sales dynamics is Apple, which grew by 7% with sales of 7.9 million devices. The market leader, Lenovo, decreased sales from 20.1 million devices last year to 16.9 million devices this year, a decrease of 16%. HP, in second place, saw sales drop even further, dropping 27% to 12.7 million units.
