PC market in China began to decline after seven quarters of growth
According to research firm Canalys, shipments of personal computers, including desktop
computers, laptops and workstations have decreasedin China in the first quarter by 1% and amounted to 12.7 million devices. Thus, analysts note that the trend of growth in deliveries of the last seven quarters has been interrupted, and the market has moved to a reduction. Sales of desktop computers decreased by 11% to 3.9 million devices. Notebook sales, on the contrary, grew by 6% to 7.7 million units. In the first quarter, there was a shortage of components in the market, and the result was also strongly negatively affected by restrictions in a number of Chinese cities caused by lockdowns in connection with the coronavirus pandemic, which led to disruption of production chains and lower production volumes. Lenovo strengthened its leadership position in the Chinese market by selling 4.3 million devices, which provided it with 37% of the market. The top three also included Dell and HP.
