Quarterly PC shipments worldwide 2009-2020, by vendor

In the second quarter of 2020, Lenovo shipped 16.2 million personal computers worldwide, surpassing HP's 16.17 million shipments in that same quarter and retaining its market leader position. Dell occupies the third place on the list, shipping 10.65 million PCs. There is a growing trend of consolidation, with HP, Lenovo, and Dell taking up an increasing share of the PC market.

Vendors shifting away from traditional PCs

The nature of the PC market is changing, as many vendors are gravitating towards the expanding software industry. A predominate adaptation strategy is to incorporate new technologies into the PC experience. For example, Dell Technologies, which has a market share of around 17 percent, is prioritizing enterprise software and cloud solutions, and a new direction for its PC design by including virtual and artificial intelligence technologies into Dell Workstations. HP is responding to the changing market environment by focusing on developing its product line of premium devices for gaming ecosystems. Lenovo’s response has been developing devices specifically for corporate use, as well as integrating virtual reality headsets into their line of computers.
