The traditional PC market (including laptops, desktops, and workstations) is down 3.3 percent YoY as of Q2 2017 according to market research firm IDC. Analysts had originally anticipated a slightly steeper drop of 3.9 percent, but a handful of manufacturers have actually shipped more this year compared to the last.
The lower-than-expected drop can be attributed to the continuing strong demand in North America. In comparison, demand overseas in the Asia-Pacific region (excluding Japan) has been very poor while the EMEA region has been relatively stable thanks to healthier sales of convertibles and 2-in-1s.
HP is still the manufacturer to beat after overtaking Lenovo as the largest PC company earlier this year. HP, Dell, and Apple have grown YoY in terms of total number of PCs shipped by 6.2 percent, 3.7 percent, and 1.7 percent, respectively. These top three companies make up nearly 60 percent of all traditional PCs sold worldwide. Unfortunately, this growth was not enough to offset the significant drops from other less fortunate manufacturers like Dell and Asus.
