PC Sales Touch Bottom, 80million shipments lowest since 2008

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

The Fall of Brand Apple :Mac sales show biggest decline since a decade

Surveys conducted by Needham & Co. found that about 15 percent of iPhone- or iPad-owning Windows users actually go on to purchase a Mac, while 20 percent would consider switching. 

Is Brand Apple is running out of steam ?  Apple’s Mac shipments dropped 22 percent last Q3 which incidently  is its biggest decline in shipments and marketshare in a decade , marking their biggest decline since  2003 ,( 10 years ago)

Analysts across the Tech industry ” share the view that ” Apple has been  losing its Lustre” for quite some time now, and they believe  ” that the Top Leadership ” do not want to accept that “

Going by sheer numbers, its not hard to realise the truth ” Apple shipped 778,000 fewer Macs in 2012 than it did in 2011, while it had 43 million more iPhones and 25 million more iPads, respective

However “Mac shipments are still declining more slowly than the overall PC market. But they are still declining — a fact that analyst Charlie Wolf of Needham & Co. believes may be attributable to the Mac’s “wow factor” gradually fading and Apple is failing to get the ” Switcher Segments
Apple’s CEO Tim Cook  however attributes the slowdown of Mac shipments to the release of the new iMacs late in the quarter and low inventory, and  believes” that this has to do with a slow moving world economy  and the   overall decline of the PC market and the rise of tablets and Smartphones

PC Shipments Comparison : Windows vs Apple Devices :

When Windows 95 launched in 1995 it negated most of the advantages of the ease of use of the Macintosh and the PC market took off. The ratio reached 56 in 2004 when 182.5 million PCs were sold vs. 3.25 million Macs.
During the second half of the 90s it was already clear that Windows won the PC platform war. Windows had an  advantage that seemed unsurmountable.

Statistics show that Microsoft Windows has approximately 91% of the market share, while the Apple Mac OS has around 5% of the market share. The other 4% is owned by other operating systems such as Linux.

For the past 20 quarters, sales of Apple Macs  have grown faster than the PC market Apple Macintosh, was the first successful personal computer to feature a mouse and a graphical user interface (GUI), and it was introduced on the 24th of January 1984. About a year later, Microsoft introduced Microsoft Windows in November 1985 in response to the growing interest in the GUIs.

When the Macintosh was launched in 1984, computers running the MS-DOS operating system were nearing a dominant position in the market.The  IBM PC,were quickly cloned and four years later “PCs” were selling at the rate of 2 million/yr.  The Mac only managed 372k units in its first year.
PC was outselling the Mac by a factor of nearly 6. It turned out to be a high point. The ratio by which the PC outsold the Mac only increased from there.

When Windows 95 launched in 1995 it negated most of the advantages of the ease of use of the Macintosh and the PC market took off. The ratio reached 56 in 2004 when 182.5 million PCs were sold vs. 3.25 million Macs.(source : Asymco)

Nearly 488 million smartphones were shipped, compared to 415 million PCs throughout 2011

Vendors shipped 488 million smart phones in 2011, compared to 415 million client PCs  
Apple was the leading smart phone vendor in 2011, following record Q4 shipments

However The global PC market grew 15% in 2011, Canalsys says — almost entirely because of the 274% increase in tablet sales, which itself is largely due to the iPad. (Canalsys counts the tablet as a PC, which is not exactly a settled point).
Vendors shipped 158.5 million smart phones in Q4 2011, up 57% on the 101.2 million units shipped in Q4 2010. This bumper quarter took total global shipments for the whole of 2011 to 487.7 million units, up 63% on the 299.7 million smart phones shipped throughout 2010. By comparison, the global client PC market grew 15% in 2011 to 414.6 million units, with 274% growth in pad shipments. Pads accounted for 15% of all client PC shipments in 2011.

The Smartphone numbers in 2011,  were simply incredible,  and  the  world has never before   witnessed  such a  “consumer Electronic device” which  has been adopted as such scorching pace . It goes without saying, that Apple’ IPad has been a game  changer and a precursor to the Rise of Smartphones worldwide
Nokia’s record was 28 million smartphones shipped in a quarter; Apple’s new record, set in Q4 of 2011, is 38 million

According to the report  The Smart phone market  growth will be slow in 2012 as vendors exercise greater cost control and discipline, and put more focus on profitability.
