East Africa PC market falls 24.8% in Q3

Thursday 12 November 2015 | 15:42 CET | News
The PC market in East Africa, comprising Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Ethiopia, suffered a year-on-year decline of 24.8 percent in the third quarter to 108,088 unit shipments, according to International Data Corporation (IDC). Given the region's reliance on imports, the continuing depreciation of local currencies is driving greater inflationary risks and subsequently depressing consumer sentiment and purchasing power. Each of the four countries monitored by IDC recorded double-digit declines year on year in the third quarter of 2015, with Ethiopia suffering the steepest drop at 36.7 percent.
