Worldwide traditional PC shipments declined 15% year over year in the third quarter of 2022 but Apple's Mac shipments grew an impressive 40%, reports IDC. Global shipments totaled 74.3 million units, down from 87.3 million.

Notably, Apple was the only manufacturer to see positive growth in Q3 with 10.1 million in shipments giving it a market share of 13.5%. The company's launch of its own M-series processors, along with redesigned notebook and desktop models have made its current lineup of devices an easy choice for customers.

"Consumer demand has remained muted though promotional activity from the likes of Apple and other players has helped soften the fall and reduce channel inventory by a couple weeks across the board," said Jitesh Ubrani, research manager for IDC's Mobility and Consumer Device Trackers. "Supply has also reacted to the new lows by reducing orders with Apple being the only exception as their third quarter supply increased to make up for lost orders stemming from the lockdowns in China during the second quarter."

"In addition to shipment volumes, we'll be keeping a close eye on how average selling prices (ASPs) trend this quarter," added Linn Huang, research vice president, Devices & Displays at IDC. "Shortages over the last several years have aggressively driven product mix shifts towards the premium end. This, coupled with cost increases of components and logistics, drove ASPs up five quarters in a row to $910 in 1Q22, the highest since 2004. However, with demand slowing, promotions in full swing, and orders being cut, the ASP climb was reversed in 2Q22. Another quarter of ASP declines indicates a market in retreat."
