Epidemic rescue has long been reduced to the PC market in the sunset industry, causing the latter to have the highest year-on-year sales growth in a decade
In recent years, the PC market has been on the verge of dying under the pressure of the mobile Internet. Consumers are willing to spend close to 10,000 yuan on a smart phone, but feel that a 4,000 yuan laptop is too expensive.
Not only are consumers saying that, but the data presented by data analysis agencies also show that consumers' wallets do feel that smart phones are better, and computer sales are declining.
However, what I never expected was that the sudden outbreak of the new crown epidemic this year caused everything to change suddenly. The long-silent PC market was suddenly revamped, and sales were rising.
The data report released by data analysis agency Canalys shows that since the second quarter of this year, the PC market has continued to maintain double-digit growth, and this situation has continued until the third quarter. The PC market has increased by nearly 13% year-on-year, making the third quarter PC sales reached 79.2 million units, which was the highest quarter of PC market sales in the past ten years.
There is no doubt that this is almost all due to the epidemic. Because of the epidemic, companies in various countries have basically chosen to let their employees work from home, which led to a sudden surge in notebook computer sales. In the second quarter, global notebook computer shipments reached 64 million units, which is almost close to the peak of the PC market in 2011. Notebook computer sales in the fourth quarter (64.6 million units).
As one of the companies with the most eye-catching performance in the PC market this year, Lenovo regained its sales champion in the third quarter, with Q3 shipments totaling more than 19 million, a year-on-year growth rate of 11.4%. Hewlett-Packard, which has been following closely, ranked second with 18.66 million shipments, a year-on-year growth rate of 11.9%.
