IDC Identifies PC Sales Turnaround In Quarterly Tracker Report
- 0 Comments
PC sales are on the way up, according to a recent IDC Worldwide Quarterly PC Tracker report last Thursday.
After three consecutive quarters of decline, worldwide shipments rose 2-3% compared to the same period last year. Laptops soared an impressive 33.5% increase, while desktops continued to fall.
As a result of these developments, the overall PC market is expected to rise 1.9% in 2009, and a tremendous 10.3% in 2010. Netbooks are thought to be having a big hand in the PC industry’s turnaround.
IDC’s Loren Loverde mentioned what he thought explained the turnaround:
“Once again, the PC market shows its resiliency. The speed of market stabilization and growth in key segments reflect the essential role of personal computing today. Technology evolution and falling prices remain a compelling combination. As commercial spending recovers in 2010, we expect to see robust growth over the next several years.”
