IDC: Q3 global PC shipments fell again by 15% year-on-year

The International Data Corporation (IDC) released a report saying that in the third quarter of 2022, global PC shipments totaled 74.2 million units, and the traditional PC market continued to decline. Cooling demand and supply imbalances contributed to a 15.0% year-on-year contraction. The report states that traditional PCs include desktops, notebooks, and workstations, not tablets or x86 servers. Due to the imminent end of support for Windows 7, current PC shipments are largely driven by commercial updates, and shipments are still well above pre-pandemic levels.

IDC data shows that in the third quarter of 2022, the top five global PC shipments were Lenovo (22.7%), HP (17.1%), Dell (16.1%), Apple (13.5%), and ASUS (7.5%).

In terms of the average selling price (ASP), the ASP price increased to $910 (about 6,488 yuan) in the first quarter of 2022 after five consecutive quarters of increases, the highest level since 2004. "However, the upward trend in ASPs will reverse in the second quarter of 2022 as demand slows, promotions are in full swing, and orders are cut. Another quarter of ASP declines suggests the market is pulling back."
