According to the latest data released by Gartner, a market research company, PC shipments rose 32% in the first quarter of 2021, the highest growth rate since the research company began tracking PC sales in 2000. Meanwhile, the volume of notebook and desktop computers shipped in the quarter was 69.9 million, the highest quarter since 2015.
Gartner’s statistics don’t include Google’s chromebook, which is a cheap laptop running Google designed browser operating system and popular with schools.
In the early stage of the new coronavirus epidemic, PC shipments fell sharply. Later in 2020, the demand for telecommuting and online teaching will rebound.
The boom is real: according to Gartner, total PC shipments were also the highest since 2015, when they reached 71.7 million.
Gartner, which includes chromebook, estimates that PC shipments grew 47% in the quarter.
According to chinasoft.com, there are three points worth paying attention to in the development of personal computers
First, PC sales are growing strongly. As people return to the office and students return to campus, a new hybrid office model will emerge, and the sales boom of personal computers working at home may not end.
Canalys, a market research firm, estimates that the PC market grew by 55% in the quarter, and IDC also estimates a 55% growth.
Second, in the face of global semiconductor shortage, personal computers will continue to need a lot of new chips and other components. The first quarter is usually a trough for PC sales, especially when compared with the holiday season. The quarter could have been stronger had it not been for global chip shortages and other supply chain problems, which have forced some PC vendors to say that they ship a few months later than usual.
Third, according to the report, the top PC manufacturers are Lenovo, HP, Dell, apple, Acer and ASUS. The pattern of PC manufacturers has not changed much.
