Lenovo tops worldwide PC market in flat quarter

Lenovo MIIX 630

Lenovo, on the other hand, has topped the list by acquiring over 23% of the market share. "We expect the Windows 10 upgrade cycle to continue through 2020 at which point the upgrade demand will diminish", said Mikako Kitagawa, Principal Analyst at Gartner.

Research firm Gartner's figures show that PC shipments grew YoY in the second quarter for the first time since Q1 2012.

By IDC's metric, overall PC devices shipped had reduced year over year, from 67,971 in the third quarter last year.

Notably, Dell and Apple were down, and the overall United States market was flat (down some 50,000 units) in Q3 2018, so in that context, Surface sales are doing fine. What's interesting is that in the United States breakdown, we see that Microsoft has made its first appearance in the top five, knocking Acer off the table.

Gartner's statistics include desk-based PCs, notebook PCs, and ultramobile premiums such as Microsoft Surface, but not Chromebooks or iPads.

The IMF has downgraded its forecast for global economic growth to 3.7 percent this year from its earlier estimate of 3.9 percent. He said that the incentives given by his government can also lead to exports rising by $10 billion from a current $20 billion.

Gartner's PC shipment estimates for the third quarter of 2018 have HP Inc as the number one PC seller, followed by Dell - no surprises there - and Lenovo and Apple in third and fourth positions.

IDC listed USA shipped devices as 17.2 million.

PC makers shipped 67.2 million units in the third quarter of 2018, a 0.1 percent increase from the same period past year, according to preliminary numbers released Wednesday by Gartner, a market research firm.

In brief: The PC market had its most successful quarter in six years during Q2, and while growth was flat during the last quarter, it still exceeded expectations.

It's not too late for Apple to win back enterprise Mac users who are switching to Windows machines or low-priced Chromebooks, but it's close.
