Chinese-headquartered Lenovo and American counterpart, HP have dominated the statistics for global PC shipment for Q1’21.
Market research from several firms agree and have respectively reported the global PC shipments data for the first quarter.
According to said reports, demand remains high, particularly due to a strong commercial segment. This is because of a pandemic-driven urgency for consumers to get their hands on PCs. Component supply issues, however, remain a problem for the industry; but the extent of shortfalls and backlogs is reducing.
It is remains the predominant assumption that the strong demand across different categories; as well as and a low base in the same period last year; due to the coronavirus outbreak are amongst the prime reasons for the growth. Lenovo now leads the market in gain in the first quarter of 2021 with a 24 percent share; followed by HP at 23 percent; Dell at 17 percent; and Apple at nine percent.
A key note has been of the fact that the overall momentum of the market was mainly driven by the growth in gaming notebooks; and a surging demand from the work-from-home and study-from-home segments.
The high demand is instigated by commercial sales channels made by recovering businesses. Looking ahead from here on, the industry may expect consumer sales to slow down while commercial sales go up. At the same time, supply chain constraints; while still affecting production, has relieved lead time for components.
As Apple’s M1 computers continue to trickle into the market, the PC market is expected to see strong sales
