It’s really important to know where the PC industry is actually moving. It’s true that an advent of Tablets has devoured a huge market share of computing devices, including desktops , traditional PCs and laptops. However, just a month before, we reported that sales of Global PC shipments showed off a 12% Y/Y in Q4 2012. At the beginning of this year, many people believed to see some more innovations in PC segment.

Previously, we have already discussed how Dell’s reputation is continuously declining day-over-day, and also, we have had a discussion why Microsoft would need to focus on its pricing strategy.  According to a latest report from IDC, worldwide PC shipments in Q1 2013  are expected to decline due to slower-than-the-expected growth rate of the device in emerging markets like China, the world’s leading PC market, during February this year.

Worldwide PC Shipments In Q1 2013 To Decline

IDC has predicted that Worldwide PC shipments in Q1 2013 could see a sharp decline of 7.7%, which is 2% higher than what the firm predicted earlier on the basis of vendors and the supply chains’ willing for Windows transition. Furthermore, it’s time for the  PC vendors to come out with competitive new products with affordable price tags, in order to compete with tablets’ pricing.

Worldwide PC Shipments In Q1 2013

The program Vice-president of worldwide PC Trackers at IDC says, ”  our February monthly data suggest that we could see a drop touching double-digits in the first quarter and a mid-single-digit decline in the second quarter before we see any recovery in the second half of the year. Even getting to positive growth in the second half of 2013 will take some attractive new PC designs and more competitive pricing relative to tablets and other products.”

Obviously, it’s no surprise for people how tablet continues to swallow PC shipments across the world. You might have remembered that in December last year, IDC predicted that tablet shipments will touch 172.4 million units figure, and by 2016, the sales figure will hit 282.7 million units mark. One side, where tablet shipments are ramping up, while on the other side, worldwide PC sales has continuously been seeing a lackluster demand among users.

Undoubtedly, the Chinese market is now one of the determining factors of worldwide PC shipments, as the market is accounting for over 21% of global shipments last year. The slowdown of PC shipments is the country, partially due to the arrival of ‘Chinese New Year holiday’ and budget cuts decision taken by government as well as anti-corruption measures, will impact on worldwide PC shipments in 2013. Likewise China, other markets such as Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa and the Asia-Pacific regions would also see the drop in PC shipments in current quarter.

Just go with the link to know more about the some important stats related to PC shipments in Q4 2012.
