PC market in India will likely grow at 20%, almost double of global PC market this year, as per Gartner, the research firm. However, the growth in Indian PC market will be five percentage-points lower in comparison to what it was last year (2006).
Gartner forecasts that PC makers will ship 255.7 million units worldwide this year, a 10.5% increase from 2006. Revenue, on the other hand, is projected to increase only 4.6% to US$213.7 billion, as average selling prices continue to drop.
In 2007, worldwide shipments of PCs are expected to increase 10.5% from last year to reach 255.7 Million units. On the other hand, the revenues are anticipated to grow just 4.6% and reach US$ 213.7 Billion with continuous decline in average selling prices. Emerging markets will play a key role in this growth.
“Emerging markets and mobile PCs will continue to provide growth. However, falling average selling prices (ASPs), slowing replacement activity, and further declines in mature market desk-based PC shipments will keep PC vendors under pressure to rationalize their operations or exit the market,” as per George Shiffler, research director with Client Platforms Markets Group of Gartner Dataquest. The statement appeared in IndiaTimes Infotech on March 21, 2007.
