Wednesday 14 August 2019 | 11:32 CET | News

The India traditional PC market (inclusive of desktop, notebook, workstation) shipped 3.4 million units, recording a solid 49.2 percent year-on-year growth, according to data from IDC. This was mainly due to commercial segment driven by ELCOT education deal fulfillment under which Tamil Nadu Government plans to distribute around 1.5 million laptops to students.

The notebook category grew by 81 percent year-on-year contributing 74.3 percent of the overall India traditional PC market. This growth is again attributed to the ELCOT deal. The ultra-slim category, with a share of 21.1 percent of the total notebook’s category, grew by 92.7 percent.

Segment highlights

The consumer PC market declined by 14 percent year-on-year, but the gaming PC segment grew by 41.1 percent and continues to be one bright spot in the struggling consumer PC market.

The overall commercial PC market grew by 108 percent in Q2, taking the total shipments to 2.43 million units. This growth was driven by a single 1.11 million units ELCOT deal. Even outside ELCOT, the commercial market did well with a growth rate of 12.6 percent year-on-year.

Top 3 company 

Lenovo led the India traditional PC market in Q2 with overall market share of 46.2 percent, followed by HP with 22.4 percent and Dell with 14.2 percent in Q2. 

India PC market forecast

Researchers anticipate the overall traditional India PC market to decline in Q3 over last quarter since a major portion of ELCOT deal was reported in Q2. The commercial market outside ELCOT is also expected to be strong as the government and education projects are expected to materialise.
