Gartner Says India PC Market Declined 13 Percent in the Second Quarter of 2015

The combined desk-based and mobile PC market in India totalled nearly 2.2 million units in the second quarter of 2015, a 13 percent decrease over the second quarter of 2014, according to Gartner, Inc.

“Consumers accounted for 48 percent of total PC sales in the second quarter of 2015,” said Vishal Tripathi, research director at Gartner. ”In the absence of any substantial demand from enterprises this quarter, the Indian PC market performed dismally, re-emphasizing the fact that sentiments were not very positive in the second quarter of 2015.The enterprise segment might witness some growth going forward due to government and education projects, however there might not be a significant bounce back.”

White boxes (including parallel imports), which accounted for 44 percent of the overall desktop market, declined 7 percent in the second quarter of 2015 compared to the same period last year. In the second quarter, mobile PCs declined 18 percent year-on-year due to a deeper slack in consumer demand.

HP maintained the No. 1 position, despite a decline in market share in the second quarter of 2015 (see Table 1). Lenvo experienced the largest increase in market share, as it accounted for 18.1 percent of PC shipments in India in the second quarter of 2015, up from 14 percent share in the same period last year. Lenovo’s growth primarily came from the consumer PC segment where Lenovo grew by 59 percent.
