Worldwide PC Shipments Grew 2.8% in 2Q20 [Report]

Worldwide PC shipments totaled 64.8 million units in the second quarter of 2020, an increase of 2.8% year over year, according to Gartner.

After a significant decline in the first quarter of the year due to COVID-19-related supply chain disruptions, the PC market returned to growth as vendors restocked their channels and mobile PC demand increased.

“The second quarter of 2020 represented a short-term recovery for the worldwide PC market, led by exceptionally strong growth in EMEA,” said Mikako Kitagawa, research director at Gartner. “After the PC supply chain was severely disrupted in early 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some of the growth this quarter was due to distributors and retail channels restocking their supplies back to near-normal levels.

“Additionally, mobile PC growth was particularly strong, driven by several factors including business continuity for remote working, online education and consumers’ entertainment needs. However, this uptick in mobile PC demand will not continue beyond 2020, as shipments were mainly boosted by short-term business needs due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Lenovo and HP topped the charts with each accounting for around 25% of shipments. Dell followed with 16.4% of the market. Apple came in fourth with 6.7%, up slightly from 6.6% a year ago.

Looking at just the United States, Apple again came in fourth but with 13% market share, up from 12.9% a year ago.
