Lenovo holds on as world's No 2 PC supplier amid signs of market stability
"Worldwide shipments totaled 67 million units, down 3.6% from the year-earlier quarter, and according to lead PC analyst Mika Kitagawa, what really hurt the business was a 10% drop in shipments in the US market, which offset "signs of stabilization" in markets such as Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Japan and Latin America".
As for the USA market, Gartner's Kitagawa said, "Weak back-to-school sales were further evidence that traditional consumer PC demand drivers for PCs are no longer effective". Not surprisingly, competitive pressures further cemented the dominance of the top five PC companies, which accounted for almost 75 percent of the total traditional PC market.
Dell's worldwide PC shipments were slightly down compared to the same period in 2016, as it registered its first year-over-year shipment decline since the first quarter of 2016.
IDC delivered a more positive assessment, reporting that the United States market only contracted by 3.4 percent in Q3, with total shipments coming to 16.6 million.
There are multiple reasons for the continued sluggishness of global PC shipments. "Although desktops continued to erode, growing interest in gaming contributed towards keeping the desktop market afloat", the analysts stated. In the U.S. PC's experienced a notable decline with poor notebook shipments but slightly better desktop shipments.

IDC says HP's figures were helped by major wins in Asia Pacific.
Hong Kong-listed Lenovo shipped 14.5 million personal computers worldwide in the quarter ended September 30 to corner a 21.6 per cent share of the global market, behind market leader HP's 22.8 per cent share on shipments of 15.3 million units, according to preliminary industry estimates from research firm IDC. Lenovo was second with 21.6 percent. Dell fared well internationally, but saw declining volume in North America.
In the U.S., Apple remains the third-most-popular PC vendor, but it saw its Mac sales stateside slide 7.6% year-over-year.
ASUS retained the fifth position, but was the only company in the top 5 to decline faster than the market average. It appears the company is putting more emphasis on profitability than share gain, according to Gartner.
