  • PC shipments fall during holiday season and across all of 2018

The top 3 vendors boosted market share and Lenovo was No. 1, according to IDC and Gartner.

Just when the PC market found its footing the USA trade war with China and processor shortages put the kibosh on unit sales, according to stats from both IDC and Gartner. "The impact from the CPU shortage affected vendors' ability to fulfill demand created by business PC upgrades".

This was the 7th consecutive yearly decline in worldwide PC shipments, although Gartner added that the decline was less steep than the previous three years. According to the market research company, the Redmond giant had a 3.3% market share in the USA in Q4 2018 with 472K PC shipments, down 12.9% year-over-year. This, the analyst firm believes, slightly outperformed the forecast of 4.7 percent, though, for the full year, PC shipments declined 0.4 percent year on year. Due to processor shortages and the trade war with China, shipments declined during the last quarter and across the whole of 2018.

According to Gartner's latest shipment figures for the last quarter of 2018, shipments dropped 4.3 per cent compared to the same quarter in past year.

"Political and economic uncertainties in some countries dampened PC demand", Kitagawa said.

The global PC market returned to its familiar downward slope in the fourth quarter, according to preliminary numbers from market analysts. Lenovo also had a strong quarter in the US. It has YoY growth for the quarter down 3.7 percent, with 68.1 million units shipped. Dell, in contrast, had the strongest year-over-year growth among the top five OEMs with a 1.6 percent increase in quarterly shipments. The company is followed by HP with 23.6 per cent share, and Dell, with 16.5 per cent.

Only Lenovo, which moved ahead of HP to become the quarter's top vendor, and third place Dell showed growth compared to Q4 2017.

"There was even uncertainty in the United States - where the overall economy has been strong - among vulnerable buyer groups, such as small and midsize businesses (SMBs)".

"While the processor supply challenges are expected to continue into the first two quarters of 2019, PC makers are likely to see the situation improve before the back-to-school season begins during the latter half of the year", IDC Senior Research Analyst Neha Mahajan said in a statement.
