Global shipments of PCs and tablets to fall sharply in 2022 and 2023: Report

According to a new report, worldwide shipments of traditional PCs are expected to fall 12.8 percent to 305.3 million units in 2022, while tablet shipments are expected to drop 6.8 percent to 156.8 million.

Inflation, a weakening global economy and an increase in purchases over the past two years are the main reasons for the lowered outlook, according to the IDC report.

“Long-term demand will be driven by a slow economic recovery combined with enterprise hardware refreshes as support for Windows 10 nears its end. Education deployments and hybrid jobs are also expected to be the mainstays for further volumes,” said Jitesh Ubrani, researcher. manager for IDC Mobility and Consumer Device Trackers.

Further declines are also expected in 2023 as consumer demand has slowed, demand for education has been largely met, and business demand is squeezed out by deteriorating macroeconomic conditions.

The combined PC and tablet market is forecast to decline 2.6 percent in 2023 before returning to growth in 2024, the report said.

“With economic headwinds mounting, we expect worsening consumer sentiment to lead to a further decline in the consumer market over the next six quarters,” added Linn Huang, vice president of research, Devices and Displays.

“Economic recovery in time for the next major renewal cycle could drive some growth in the latter years of our forecast. Although volumes will not reach pandemic peaks, we expect the consumer market to move towards the more premium end of the market,” Huang added. .
