The world's PC market collapsed, with sales falling by 11.1%

Counterpoint Technology Market Research published statistics on the world market for personal computers in the second quarter of this year: sales declined significantly.

Between April and June, 71.2 million desktops and laptops were sold globally, a decrease of 11.1 per cent compared to the second quarter of last year, with analysts noting the largest drop since the second quarter of 2013.

The picture is explained by a number of factors, such as China ' s restrictions on the ongoing pandemic, and the prevailing geopolitical situation and high inflation have had a negative impact on the industry.

The world market leader remains Lenovo, with a share of approximately 24.4%, while the Chinese company ' s supply declined from 19.9 million to 17.4 million per year.

In the second place is the MS, which controls approximately 18.8 per cent of the industry, which was able to sell 13.4 million PCs during the last quarter, compared to 18.4 million a year earlier.

The company's annual shipments decreased from 13.8 million to 13.1 million computers.
