A recent report by Global Market Insights shows that opposed to the trend of the global PC market, the Chromebook market promises to continue its growth in the long run. Although the main force behind its growth is the demand generated by the education sector, this market delivers enough to home users as well.

Chrome OS-driven notebooks are already outselling Macs, and the best sellers in Amazon's Laptop Computers department have been Chromebooks for quite a long time. Global Market Insights's Chromebook-related numbers are quite interesting:

  • 5.3 million units in 2014, over 17 million by 2023
  • education sector - 72 percent in 2014 globally, 60 percent in the US
  • US market - 4.8 million units and 84 percent of the global market in 2014

Until now, the main problem for Chromebooks was the lack of software titles for home users. Now, finally having Google Play Store apps running on this platform changes everything and, in the long run, home users might take the top spot currently held by the education sector.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
