Computers are thriving, but they are hampered by a lack of chips and distribution problems

Chinese Lenovo continues to lead among manufacturers.

The global supply of so-called traditional computers, including IDC Analytics Advise Desktops, laptops, and workstations rose 3.9 percent year-over-year in the third quarter of this year. Thus, manufacturers have supplied the market with almost 87 million devices. This comes from data from the Global Quarterly Personal Computing Device Tracker.

IDC reports that PCs have seen an increase in shipments year-over-year for six consecutive quarters. On the other hand, manufacturers have to face different challenges and not all of them are in their hands.

Problems with chips, but also with distribution

An important factor is the growth in the volume of supplies themselves, which intensified especially after the outbreak of the epidemic. The reason was obvious: many consumers had to purchase new equipment due to the need to work from home, for distance education needs or just entertainment.

Either they didn’t have a computer at all, or they had to upgrade their current one, or they bought another one for other activities (to a ‘more main computer for gaming or entertainment).’ This trend continues in many areas, but is weakening in some places. Analysts have drawn Special attention from IDC to the results of the computer market in the United States, where they recorded an annual decline in the volume of deliveries of 7.5 percent.

However, it is not just about saturating or saturating the computer market. Other negative factors also play a major role in slowing down the growth of the computer. Above all, it is the lack of chips that literally hinders many manufacturers from being able to offer a wider and more diverse range of products on the market.

Although many computers are listed in different catalogs of electronic or traditional stores, they cannot really be purchased for several months.

Poorer PC sales are affected than can also be affected by problems with logistics and connections. Transportation of equipment (to stores or shops). Again, this is a combination of several factors, including restrictions on the spread of the coronavirus.

The leader is Lenovo

The rating of the leading PC manufacturers indicates which companies have been able to cope with the situation. Dell and Apple in particular reported significant year-over-year increases. In particular, Apple has long been known for its robust and relatively stable structure for its supply chain. Often, the supplies for their equipment are preferred over others (of course, they are not free).

This is also why the company with the sting apple in the logo was able to top up its account year-over-year in the volume of deliveries by one-tenth to 7.6 million. to cut. However, it is the leading manufacturers of Dell that have done the most. The troika in the world rankings improved year-on-year by more than 26 percent to 15.1 million. Pieces of equipment delivered.

By contrast, the second global market (HP) posted an annual decline of 5.8 percent. The Chinese company Lenovo, which is the leader in the world rankings, has not seen any significant increases. However, the company improved by a fairly good 3.1 percent to nearly 20 million. Delivery of computers for one quarter.

Up front, we’ll find manufacturers Asus and Acer with annual increases of 3.6 percent, respectively. 1.4 percent. IDC put them in the same situation because of a very small difference between them.
