PC shipments to decline for second year running
New Delhi: PC shipments are expected to decline by 1.3 percent in 2013 following a 3.7 percent drop in 2012, a report has said.

According to IDC’s latest report, the market is poised for a second consecutive year of downslide with limited initial traction from Windows 8 as well as continued pressure from tablets.

These same factors, along with a continuing economic malaise that further crimped IT budgets, pulled down fourth-quarter shipments in 2012 by a record 8.3 percent year-on-year, Enterprise Innovation reports.

According to the report, IDC further observed that the growth potential in emerging markets is declining and coming closer to that of mature regions, which are expected to mark a third consecutive year of shrinking volume.

Emerging markets saw volume decline for the first year in 2012, and while 2013 will return to growth, it is projected at less than one percent and with modest, single-digit growth through 2017.

IDC continues to expect limited growth in 2014 and 2015 with contracting volume in later years, the report added.
