It’s still selling more PCs than before the pandemic, despite predictions

If the PC market is doing against all odds overall well, some industry players have necessarily benefited more than others. The big winner of the operation is none other than Apple, which sold more during this third quarter of 2022 than during the same period last year. The brand recorded double-digit growth, from 8.2% market share to 13.5%, and an impressive 40% increase in global shipments.

Lenovo remains in first place, with a market share of 22.7% this quarter, despite a 16% drop in units sold compared to last year. Despite its second place in the market, however, HP lost both market share and shipments, with a 30% drop in this category.

IDC does not, however, specify the results of brands like MSI, Gigabyte, Razer and other more “modest” manufacturers. If these have a certain influence on the PC market, their goodwill lies mainly in peripherals, the results of which have remained stable between 2021 and 2022.

Encouraging results for the PC market, in short. But recent developments such as the conflict between Ukraine and Russia, inflation and the energy crisis should nevertheless impact, among other things, the PC market in the last quarter. Everyone will indeed have to tighten their belts and prioritize other purchases than that of a PC, because the coming winter promises to be terrible.
