PC shipments to grow 11.2% this year

Posted on Friday, June 22 2007 @ 03:51:33 CEST by

Research firm iSuppli has updated its global PC shipments. The firm expects PC shipments will increase from 239 million units last year to 264 million in 2007, a 11.2% rise. This is 0.5% more than the company's previous forecast.
iSuppli expects notebooks to account for almost 40% of total 2007 PC market shipments.

On a related note, iSuppli reissued its forecast for Solid-State Drives (SSDs) in notebook PCs. iSuppli predicts the penetration of SSDs in notebooks will reach 12% by the end of 2009. In contrast, penetration of Hybrid Hard Drives (HHD) in notebook PCs will reach 35% by the end of 2009.

SSDs are intended as replacements for conventional Hard Disk Drives (HDDs), using flash memory instead of traditional rotating media, noted the research firm. HHDs employ flash memory in combination with HDDs to create a hybrid solution.

Another approach to PC flash memory storage, Intel's Robson – also known as Turbo Memory – also is expected to take off in 2007. Because any HDD can work with Turbo Memory, this solution will penetrate the market faster than HHDs, which still is undergoing standardization issues.
