Gartner: PC shipments to drop 2 percent this year

Posted on Thursday, September 24 2009 @ 15:45:29 CEST by


Research firm Gartner estimates worldwide PC shipments will hit 285 million units this year, a 2 percent drop from last year's 291 million units. The new forecast is more optimistic than Gartner's June forecast, which predicted a 6 percent decline in 2009.
"PC demand appears be running much stronger than we expected back in June, especially in the US and China," said George Shiffler, research director at Gartner. "Mobile PC shipments have regained substantial momentum, especially in emerging markets, and the decline in desktop PC shipments is slowing down. We think shipments are likely to be growing again in the fourth quarter of 2009 compared to the fourth quarter of 2008."

Despite the increasingly positive outlook for the PC market, Gartner does not envision global shipments experiencing growth in 2009 except as a very best-case scenario.
