India PC shipments grew 10.6% in fourth quarter of 2015

PC shipments in India totalled nearly 2.6 million units in the fourth quarter of 2015, a 10.6 percent increase over the fourth quarter of 2014, according to Gartner, Inc.

“Consumers accounted for 40 percent of total PC sales in the fourth quarter of 2015, down from 52 percent in the fourth quarter of 2014,” said Vishal Tripathi, research director at Gartner. ” The PC market in India is facing some challenging market dynamics.The enterprise segment might witness some growth going forward due to government and education projects, however we do not foresee significant growth in the PC market in India.”

White boxes (including parallel imports), which accounted for 32 percent of the overall desktop market, declined 6 percent in the fourth quarter of 2015 compared to the same period in 2014. In the fourth quarter, mobile PCs grew by 27 percent year-on-year primarily due to state government orders.

Lenovo moved into the number one position in PC shipment in India in the fourth quarter of 2015 (see Table 1) due to the state government order execution in the quarter which helped Lenovo experience the largest increase in market share.
