EMEA PC sales surge 22% in Q2 on lockdown demand

Thursday 23 July 2020 | 10:49 CET | News
Sales of traditional PCs (desktops, notebooks and workstations) in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) soared by 26.4 percent year in the second quarter of 2020 due above all to unprecedented consumer demand incurred by Covid-19 lockdowns, according to results from IDC. The Western European PC market posted sales up 30.6 percent year on year, the strongest overall growth since 1998, thanks to a 61.4 percent surge in notebook sales – the main solution used to address the high demand to work and study from home – as well as a 10.8 percent rise in desktops.
