Bengaluru: Gartner, Inc., the world's leading IT research and advisory company, conducted a survey on the PC market in India. According to the survey, the combined desktop and mobile PC market in India totaled to nearly 2.2 million units in the second quarter this year, experiencing a 13 percent dip compared to second quarter last year.
“Consumers accounted for 48 percent of total PC sales in the second quarter of 2015,” says Vishal Tripathi, Research Director, Gartner. “In the absence of any substantial demand from enterprises this quarter, the Indian PC market performed dismally, re-emphasizing the fact that sentiments were not very positive in the second quarter of 2015. The enterprise segment might witness some growth going forward due to government and education projects, however there might not be a significant bounce back,” he added.
The survey results showed that white boxes, which accounted to 44 percent of the overall desktop market, saw a negative growth of 7 percent in the second quarter this year when compared to the same time period last year. HP continued to be in the No.1 position, despite seeing a decrease of 3.1 percent in its market share (26.3%) in the second quarter this year compared to the same time period last year (29.4 percent). Lenovo accounted to 18.1 percent of the overall market, experiencing the largest increase (4.1 percent) in market share compared to its 14 percent market share in second quarter last year.
