The PC Industry Shrank Another 9%, Gartner Says | Business Insider India: "Gartner released its quarterly PC report and the news isn't good. But it isn't all bad either.

Worldwide, the PC industry declined another 8.6% to 80.3 million units total. That's the lowest number of PC sold in a quarter since the economy crashed in 2008, Gartner analyst Mikako Kitagawa said."

Lenovo was still the No. 1 biggest vendor worldwide, with nearly 18% share, a position it took from HP last quarter. HP had 17% share, Dell had nearly 12%, Acer had 8% and Asus had 6%.

The good news was that the PC industry actually grew 3.5% over the year-ago quarter in the U.S. This is the "back-to-school" quarter and that's why people were buying more PCs

3 Decades of PC Shipments:Top 5 Vendors by duration

The above chart published by  Horace Dediu of Asymco shows global PC shipments and the Vendors that were in the top 5 for the longest duration
Apart from Apple, IBM remained in the business the longest (24 years). Compaq was second with 20 years before being bought by HP. HP and Dell are still operating after 15 years, having tied Atari and Commodore. After these ancients, the upstarts Nokia and RIM are struggling to remain relevant after 10 to 12 years.






The Data from asymco shows  some of the transient Vendors  like Packard-Bell/NEC, Toshiba, Radio Shack and Fujitsu which lasted less than 10 years. The newest PC companies are all from China or Taiwan: Acer, Asus and Lenovo. Their longevity cannot be called yet though Acer seems to be in decline. Lenovo, which took over IBM’s brands continues to grow. However, as yesterday’s post showed, without diversification into devices, pure PC makers are likely to fade.
 Horace Dediu  data showed that most companies were not able to sustain presence in the top five ranking for long. Some  of the vendors were acquired, some sold their operations.
