What is the global PC market in 2017?
Global personal computers are already known as the sunset market,and laptops and desktop computers are the two major market segments. Notebook still has long vitality and market potential. According to the latest news from foreign media, a market research company’s latest report shows that Apple laptop went beyond ASUS last year to fourth in the global market.
In the PC market, the fate of desktop computers is the worst. With the popularity of game laptops, desktop computers once existed and the game market was also eroded. Desktop computers sales collapsed, and many computer vendors simply stopped producing desktop computers. In contrast, the laptop is still active.
According to U.S. media reports, the day before the technology market research firm TrendForce released a report last year, the notebook computer market, Apple’s market share rose from 8.3% to 9.6%, more than ASUS, became the fourth.
ASUS’s share of the computer has dropped from 10.3% to 9.5%. The report shows that only HP and Apple’s two brands have increased market share among the six major computer makers.
Similar to the global PC market, HP, Lenovo and DELL become the top three in the notebook market. Three companies basically occupy 60% share and become the first group of notebook computers. HP topped the list with a 24.3% share, and Lenovo got a 20.2% share.
The two biggest laptops behind apple are ASUS and Acer in the Taiwan region.
The notebook market also showed a trend of centralization. Last year, the share of other brands other than the six largest manufacturers continued to shrink by about a percentage point, leaving only 13%.
The report shows that the laptop market increased slightly from 161 million to 165 million last year, but TrendForce predicted that the laptop market in the world will be reduced by 164 million in 2018. But the company also predicts that Apple’s share will continue to grow to 10.4%, and that Apple will continue to widen the gap between ASUS and Acer.
As you can see from last year’s growth, the market performance of global laptops is much better than the overall PC market.
According to media reports, in the past few years, the industry is eager to launch tablet computers, and some vendors even think that tablet computers will compress the living space of laptops. But after several years of market proof, the use of the tablet computer is low, the current sales have fallen continuously, and it is recognized as another setting sun market.
