Worldwide PC shipments down 5.2% in 2Q, but turnaround seen, says Gartner

SINGAPORE (July 12): Worldwide PC shipment for the second quarter was down 5.2% y-o-y to 64.3 million units, extending the decline to seven straight quarters. During the quarter, all regions except North America saw a drop in volume. However, Gartner, which released these statistics, sees signs of improvement.

“One of the ongoing problems in the PC market has been the price hike in selected regions due to the weakening local currency against the US dollar,” says Mikako Kitagawa, principal analyst at Gartner.
