  • Global PC Sales Climb on Rebounding Supply Chains Rising Demand

Lenovo was the world's largest seller of PCs in the quarter, with 17.1 million units sold, compared to 16.

Apple is estimated to have shipped 4.4 million Macs during the three-month period ending in June, up from 4.2 million units in the year ago quarter. It should be noted that this data is an estimate and is not actual shipments.

Initially, COVID-19 had caused disruptions in the manufacturing supply chain in Asia, which resulted in PC shipments falling 9.8 percent during this year's first quarter. Even in the context of the global epidemic, shipments have continued to grow.

HP with over 18,000 unit shipments and 25% market share was the leading vendor in Q2, followed closely by Lenovo which shipped over 17,000 units and had 24.1% market share.

Dell is the third-ranked manufacturer with 10.648 million units shipped and a market share of 16.4%. If iPad shipments were added to Mac shipments, and the tablets made by other companies were also factored in, Apple would be much higher in the rankings. Apple also continues to be the number four vendor in the United States, coming in after HP, Dell, and Lenovo. The overall PC shipments in the United States also increased by 4.6% year-on-year. The upward tick in shipments is not expected to continue.

The need for a laptop during the pandemic caused PC shipments in the U.S. to soar to levels not seen in over a decade, according to the research firm IDC. But the reports of the two analysis agencies are very different. Compare that to the 4.1 million shipped during the same quarter of 2019 to get the 36% annual increase.

IDC believes that the overall worldwide PC market saw 11.2 percent growth with 72.3 million total PCs shipped, while Gartner believes there were 64.8 million total PCs shipped during the quarter.

It is worth noting that the data from Gartner and IDC are estimates and can not reflect Apple's actual sales. In fact, HP has also introduced a new mid-range HP Laptop 14s series that offers a SIM card slot that allows users to access 4G mobile data on their laptops in case they don't have Wi-Fi connectivity at the time, something that is great news for those who may have inconsistent internet connections at home.
