The PC Market Is Suffering Due to Smartphones and Tablets

Smartphones and tablets are pushing PC sales. Slump stands at eighth quarter, according to new figures from the analysis Institute Gartner.

We’d rather buy new smartphones and tablets than new PCs. It is one of the two basic conclusions in the analysis the House Gartner’s latest report.

In this it appears that the number of personal computers sold globally has fallen steadily over the last 8 quarters. In the last trimester fell PC sales with 5.7 percent compared to the same period last year.

In Gartner’s analysis, it appears that the PC-buy a priority lower than new smartphones and tablets. In the Western market, upgrade the PC not as often as before.

Another explanation for the sluggish PC sales, according to Gartner is a declining demand in the so-called ’emerging market’-countries such as China, Brazil, India and Russia where the PC is not yet a mainstream activity.

In these countries it is again smartphones and tablets that pushes the PC as completely cast aside in favour of the smaller, more mobile units.

Downer greatest at Apple and Acer

Among the six largest PC manufacturers, there is a big difference between how PC-crisis hits. Hardest hit are Apple and Acer as in latest quarter must note the decline of, respectively, 13.4 and 14.1 percent compared to previous years.

The world’s largest PC manufacturer, Lenovo, experiencing a small decline on 2.4 percent in same period

Manufacturers such as Dell, Asus and HP maintains on the other hand, the skin on the nose and growths each with about 2 ½ per cent in the period.
