India shipped 3.7 million PCs in Q2 of 2022: IDC

The Indian traditional PC market, which includes desktops, notebooks and workstations, delivered another solid quarter (April-June 2022), according to new records from the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Personal Computing Device Tracker. 3.7 million units with a year-on-year (YoY) growth of 17.8%. Earlier, global PC shipments declined 15.3% year-on-year in the second quarter of 2022.

Last quarter’s spillover orders boosted the government segment, but other segments are weakening and channel inventory is rising. While notebooks remained the volume leader with 2.6 million units, their growth rate slowed to 7.3% YoY from around 30% YoY in the last three quarters. The desktop category shipped over one million units for the second straight quarter.

PC demand was strong during April, but declined as universities reopened in 3Q22. Due to order delays, the Enterprise segment grew 14.9%, slower than the previous three quarters of growth. Similar to the growth of SMBs, decreased demand led to an increase in channel inventory.
