India records highest ever PC sales for a quarter

According to IDC, at 3 million units in Q3 2011, PCs registered a YOY growth of 10.8% and sequential growth of 26.6%

PC market in India thumped initial expectations and the overall market tipped off 3 million units in Q3 2011 (July – September 2011), registering the highest shipments as noted ever in the India PC market, said research firm IDC in a release.

The India PC market shipments for Q3 2011 stood at 3.09 million units, i.e. a significant sequential growth of 26.6% over the previous quarter even as the overall year-on-year growth was noted to be at 10.8%.

According to Kiran Kumar, Sr. Analyst at IDC, “The growth in Q3 was anticipated as it traditionally remains to be the largest quarter (in terms of shipments) for the India PC market. Pent-up demand and a festive season fuelled growth in the consumer segment. While Government aided expenditure and moderating domestic demand drove the growth in the commercial segments”.

Dell maintained its market leadership with a 15.5% market share in Q3 2011. HP leaped back with a strong growth to reclaim the second spot with a 13.8% share thanks to a revamp in its product-mix and a successful channel re-alignment model. While Lenovo clinched the third spot with a 12.3% share.

In another announcement, IDC also released sales and market share figures for the Hard Copy Peripherals (HCP) market in India.

The HCP market stood at 891,344 units in Q3 2011 (July – September 2011) registering the highest shipments noted ever in the India HCP market. The India HCP marked witnessed a significant sequential growth of 20.2% over the previous quarter even as the overall year on year growth was noted to be only at 1.9%. HP sustained its market leadership with a 45.8% market share.
