PC shipments grew 2.8% in Q2Christian Fernsby ▼ | July 13, 2020
PC shipments totaled 64.8 million units in the second quarter of 2020, a 2.8% increase from the second quarter of 2019, according to preliminary results by Gartner, Inc.
In the second quarter of 2020, Lenovo and HP shared the number one position in the worldwide PC market, owing to HP’s strong growth in the quarter.
They accounted for half of PC shipments in the second quarter of 2020, up from 46.6% in the second quarter of 2019.
Lenovo maintained its No. 1 position in the worldwide PC market alongside HP, with 4.2% year over year growth in worldwide shipments.
This was the result of strong double-digit growth in EMEA and over 50% growth in mobile PC shipments.
After a significant decline in the first quarter of 2020 due to supply chain constraints, HP recorded strong year over year growth in the second quarter as it recovered from those supply chain issues.
HP showed particularly strong growth in EMEA and the U.S., brought on by healthy consumer demand for PCs.
Dell’s worldwide shipments declined slightly in the second quarter of 2020, representing its first year over year decline since the first quarter of 2016.
Dell’s shipments grew in EMEA and Japan but declined in all other regions, with the steepest drop in Latin America (20%).
In many regions, Dell’s mobile PCs showed double digit growth, which was offset by a significant decline in shipments of deskbased PCs. ■
