Traditional PC shipments continue to grow in Q2 on shift to home working

Monday 13 July 2020 | 14:46 CET | News
Traditional PC shipments grew 11.2 percent year over year to a total of 72.3 million units in the second quarter, according to preliminary results from IDC. Gartner meanwhile puts the figure at 64.8 million units in Q2, a 2.8 percent increase from the second quarter of 2019. After a significant decline in the first quarter of the year due to Covid-19-related supply chain disruptions, the PC market returned to growth as vendors restocked their channels and mobile PC demand increased, Gartner researchers said.
