PC market size
As the production and manufacturing costs of devices like PCs have lowered, this has enabled companies to produce high-end products for lower selling prices, making the devices accessible to more customers. In 2022, spending on devices, including PCs, is expected to reach over 810 billion U.S. dollars globally, whilst overall IT spending is expected to reach close to 4.5 trillion U.S. dollars, with both therefore experiencing growth from 2021.
PCs come in several varieties, including stationary products like workstations and desktops, as well as portable products like laptops, notebooks, netbooks, and tablets. Without the need to be operated by a computer expert or technician, these devices are intended to be operated directly by the end-user. The term PC was first applied as early as 1972 to the Xerox PARC's Alto, but this later developed to specifically mean a desktop microcomputer compatible with IBM's PC products. Such was the influence of IBM that only Apple Macintosh (Mac) products were able to compete for a share of the microcomputer market after the 1980s, without compatibility to the IBM PC.
