Dell PC unit shipments worldwide 2011-2019, by quarter

Dell Technologies’ personal computer shipments in the fourth quarter of 2019 amounted to 12.11 million units, out of a worldwide total of just above 70.6 million units. Dell is the number three PC vendor in the world, behind Lenovo and HP Inc.

Consistency in a shrinking market

For the past decade, Dell has managed to keep their PC unit sales steady at around 10 million units per quarter, although the overall market for PCs is shrinking: since reaching a high of more than 360 million units shipped in 2011, the PC market has declined every year and is forecast to decline even further. Because of their stable unit sales, Dell's overall market share has increased in this period of declining shipments.

Rising to cloud-based solutions

As the market is undergoing a continuing fundamental shift from on-premise hardware to cloud solutions, Dell has started to adapt its business to the shift. The company has for example advanced its efforts in cloud infrastructure solutions to simplify hybrid cloud settings. This is done through endeavors such as its company VMware, a cloud computing and software virtualization company, and the data storage and infrastructure company EMC, which Dell bought in a considerable acquisition in 2015.
