12th February 2014 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

New Delhi, India, February 12, 2014: The combined desk-based and mobile PC market in India totalled nearly 1.96 million units in the fourth quarter of 2013, a 19.9 per cent decrease over the fourth quarter of 2012, according to Gartner.

Principal Research Analyst at Gartner Vishal Tripathi said, “Consumers accounted for 49 percent of total PC sales in the fourth quarter of 2013. In the absence of any government orders this quarter, the Indian PC market performed dismally, re-emphasizing the fact that with current economic sentiments and the current political scenario, enterprises are deferring their purchases.”

White boxes (including parallel imports), which accounted for 44 percent of the overall desktop market, declined 10 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013 compared to the same period last year. In the fourth quarter, mobile PCs registered a 27 percent year on year increase.

Dell increased its market share in 4Q13 due to strong growth in notebooks which increased 49 percent year over year. This growth primarily came from the consumer segment where Dell grew by 70 percent. HP’s market share in the consumer segment grew by 3 percent compared to the last quarter.
