IDC: Top 5 PC Companies Q2 2021
The worldwide shipments of traditional PCs, inclusive of desktops, notebooks, and workstations, reached 83.6 million units in Q2 2021, up 13.2% from Q2 2020 based on the preliminary results from the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Personal Computing Device Tracker.
According to IDC, though the annual growth remains quite high, it has started to lessen gradually as the 13% growth rate in Q2 2021 is far lower than the 55.9% growth in Q1 2021 and 25.8% growth in Q4 2020.
The recent data shows that the Top 5 PC companies are Lenovo, HP Inc., Dell Technologies, Apple, and Acer Group.
Leading the list is Lenovo with a 23.9% Market Share, followed by HP Inc. at 22.22%, and by Dell Technologies at 16.7%. Moreover, on the fourth spot, Apple and Acer tie at 7.4% and 7.3%, respectively. Note that IDC declares a statistical tie in the worldwide Traditional PC market when there is a difference of 0.1% or less in the shipment shares among two or more vendors.

“The market faces mixed signals as far as demand is concerned,” said Neha Mahajan, senior research analyst with IDC’s Devices and Displays Group. “With businesses opening back up, demand potential in the commercial segment appears promising. However, there are also early indicators of consumer demand slowing down as people shift spending priorities after nearly a year of aggressive PC buying.”
