PC Market in India clocks 7.9% growth in Q 3′ 13

26th November 2013 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

New Delhi, India, November 26, 2013: The combined desk-based and mobile PC market in India totalled nearly 3.2 million units in the third quarter of 2013, a 7.9 per cent increase over the third quarter of 2012, according to Gartner, Inc. The market was driven by some large government orders in an otherwise sombre economic atmosphere.

Gartner principal research analyst Vishal Tripathi said, “Consumers accounted for 40 percent of total PC sales in the third quarter of 2013 compared to 47 percent in the third quarter of 2012. This emphasises the fact that despite the festive season and availability of various end user schemes on PCs, the market was impacted by high inflation, global economic uncertainty and limited share of wallet as consumers preferred to spend on other consumer durables.”

White boxes (including parallel imports), which accounted for 40 percent of the overall desktop market, declined 26 percent in the third quarter of 2013 compared to the same period last year. Mobile PCs, with a 22 percent year on year increase, helped drive overall market growth.

HP became the No. 1 vendor in the India PC market by doubling its market share in the country, as it accounted for 32.5 percent of PC shipments in the third quarter of 2013.
