PC vendors worldwide market share - additional information

In the third quarter of 2014, Lenovo was the market leader in the PC vendor market as it held a share of 19.8 percent of all shipments. Its closest rival, Hewlett-Packard, held a share of 17.9 percent and Dell controlled 12.8 percent of the market. In the second quarter of 2017, HP reclaimed the top position.

Lenovo is a Beijing-based company which employs around 54,000 people worldwide and announced revenue of 38.7 billion U.S. dollars in 2013/14, its highest revenue to date. Of this revenue, some 51 percent came from the sale of notebooks and a further 28 percent from desktop PCs. Overall Lenovo’s PC shipments totaled more than 53 million units in 2013, of which around 6.2 million were shipped in the United States. This gave Lenovo a market share of 9.8 percent in the U.S. at the end of 2013, an increase from the 6.7 percent share it held at the end of 2011.

The second largest global vendor of PCs is Hewlett-Packard, which shipped a total of 51.17 million units worldwide in 2013. Although the company held a share of just under 18 percent worldwide in the third quarter of 2014, it enjoyed greater success in the United States where it held a share of 27.7 percent of all PC shipments in the same quarter. The Personal Systems segment is the most lucrative market for the company as it generated revenue of 32.18 billion U.S. dollars in 2013. HP generated a further 23.9 billion U.S. dollars from its printing segment. In October 2014, the company announced plans to split its PC and printers business from its enterprise products and services business. This is expected to take effect in October 2015 and will result in two publicly traded companies, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise and HP, Inc..
