Quarterly PC shipments worldwide 2009-2019, by vendor

Personal computer (PC) shipments worldwide by vendor from 2009 to 2019 (in million units)

by Arne Holst, last edited Aug 14, 2019
Quarterly PC shipments worldwide 2009-2019, by vendor In the first quarter of 2019, Lenovo shipped 13.2 million personal computers worldwide, narrowly surpassing HP's 12.83 million shipments in that same quarter and ascending to the market leader position. Dell occupies the third place on the list, shipping 9.99 million PCs. Global personal computer shipments have mostly declined since the third quarter of 2011. 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.
