Global laptop shipments amounted to 37.81 million units during the first quarter of 2017 for a year-over-year increase of 6.1 percent. The rise in sales can be attributed to strong numbers from business and enterprise clients.

Quarter-to-quarter laptop sales are down 15.6 percent from Q4 2016 to Q1 2017 as is typical over the Holiday season, but year-over-year sales are up higher than expected according to analysts from TrendForce. The upcoming second quarter of 2017 should prove to be another healthy uptick for the market.

HP grew 18.9 percent YoY and continues to be the world's largest laptop manufacturer in terms of shipment volume. Most of its growth during the past quarter can be attributed to a greater number of orders from the business sector in North America. Meanwhile, QoQ sales over the Holidays are down 17.9 percent to 8.62 million units.

Moving one step down is Lenovo sitting comfortably in second place as of Q1 2017. The Chinese manufacturer shipped approximately 8 million laptops worldwide during this period for an increase of 1.6 percent compared to Q1 2016. Dell and Asus are third and fourth, respectively, with strong sales from business and enterprise clients yet again for Dell. Asus, however, is down 9.9 percent YoY to a shipment volume of just 3.65 million units since its presence in the business sector is considerably weaker than HP, Lenovo, and Dell.

Lastly, Apple and Acer are in fifth and sixth place with 3.4 million MacBooks and 3.33 million laptops shipped, respectively. Acer in particular was able to increase in shipment volume by 28.6 percent YoY.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
