Even though we are in a recession it seems someone forgot to tell the PC market.
A year ago the PC market decined by 7% but now we have growth of 24% in the PC market. Digitimes reports that according to IDC Worldwide Quarterly PC Tracker the growth is due to new markets, new devices such as all-in-ones and better business sentiments.
“”The strong first quarter builds on the fourth quarter rebound and shows rising confidence in the PC supply chain and commercial client base along with persistent demand from consumers,” said Loren Loverde, vice president, IDC Worldwide Trackers. “The commercial gains are a cornerstone of market rebound that we have been expecting and are now seeing in the data. Despite continued strengthening of commercial demand and solid consumer and emerging market results, on-year growth is likely to slow in coming quarters as year-ago comparisons get more difficult. This is part of an expected recovery trend that should include strong second quarter performance and lift growth for the year to 15% or higher.””
