While the overall PC market isn't doing that great, demand for gaming PCs continues to be strong. Dell consumer product marketing senior vice president Raymond Wah said he expects global demand for gaming PCs will continue to boom over the next five years as eSports and VR fuel demand:
Electronic sports (e-sports) and VR (virtual reality) are main growth drivers for gaming PCs, Wah said, adding gaming is becoming e-sports and this is a global trend. Continual gaming content updates push hardware developers to upgrade the specifications of gaming PCs, Wah indicated. The number of e-sports fans will increases to 145 million in 2017.

In the gaming PC market segment, Dell has launched a series of models under the Alienware brand, with professional e-sports players being target users, Wah said, adding Dell has also launched gaming PCs under its Inspiron brand.
