PC sales struggle yet again
"The majority of the PC shipment decline in 2018 was due to weak consumer PC shipments". Lenovo also had a strong quarter in the USA and has recorded three consecutive quarters of double-digit year-over-year shipment growth.
PC shipments saw their biggest year-on-year dip since 2016 in Q4 2018, according to new reports issued by market research firms IDC and Gartner.
HP fared less well in the fourth quarter, experiencing a shipment decline after four consecutive quarters of growth. As a result of the CPU bottleneck, the provider would not be able to meet the rise in demand, especially in the case of enterprise customers in many ways, said Gartner analyst Mikako Kitagawa.
Apple's global market share fell during the fourth quarter when compared to the same period a year ago while its USA market share increased.
Chinese PC maker Lenovo took the crown in the global PC market in 2018, followed by US-based companies HP and Dell, according to data from consultancy Gartner released on Thursday.

Gartner said worldwide PC shipments dipped 4.3 percent to 68.6 million units in the fourth quarter of 2018 and dropped 1.3 percent to 259.4 million units in 2018.
Neha Mahajan, senior research analyst with IDC's Devices and Displays Group, said: "While the processor supply challenges are expected to continue into the first two quarters of 2019, PC makers are likely to see the situation improve before the back-to-school season begins during the latter half of the year". Political and economic uncertainties in some countries was another depressing factor for PC demand.
For the holiday period, Gartner has worldwide PC shipments at 68.6 million units, down 4.3 percent YoY. "Holiday sales are no longer a major factor driving consumer demand for PCs".
The top five vendors in the fourth quarter were Lenovo (24.2% market share; up 5.9% from the same quarter in 2017), HP (22.4%; down 4.4%), Dell (15.9%; up 1.4%), Apple (7.2%; down 3.8%), Asus (6.1%; down 10.7%) and Acer (5.6%; down 18.3%). Finally, at Acer, shipments dropped 18.3 percent to 3.861 million, while its market share fell to 5.6 percent form 6.6 percent.
