Global market share held by PC vendors 2018 The overall market leader in the global personal computer market in 2018 was Lenovo with a market share of 22.5 percent with Hewlett Packard a close second with a 21.7 percent share. In terms of unit sales, Lenovo had over 58 million shipments, while HP had above 56 million shipments. With the overall technology sector moving into a direction centered more on software and services, the PC hardware market has declined over the past years.
Reacting to market shifts

PC vendors are faced with the challenge to adapt to the changing market and stay relevant with new products and services, and each vendor in the hardware market has to navigate its own path to remain relevant in this shifting market. For example, HP focused on using premium materials, introduced privacy technologies built into each PC unit, and found success in laptops that convert to tablet computers. Others, such as Dell Technologies, shifted their attention to cloud service and storage solutions moving away from mainly manufacturing computer hardware to providing software and service solutions
