10th October 2014 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

Apple-logoNEW DELHI, 10th September, 2014: IT bellwether Apple has joined the ranks of the top five PC makers overtaking the likes of Asus for the first time, says the IDC Worldwide Quarterly PC Tracker.

Apple has become the fifth largest PC vendor, registering a quarterly market share of 6.3%, shipping 4.9 million units. The company shipped 4.5 million units in the same quarter, last year and grabbed a market share of 5.7%.

PC Vendor Lenovo came up as the top PC supplier, with a record volume of 15.7 million units. The company managed to regain growth in Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) and maintained its expansion and growth in EMEA. It accounted for a 20% market share.

HP emerged as the second largest vendor with a share of 18.8% shipping 14.7 million units, followed by Dell with a 13.3% market share, shipping 1.4 million units.

IDC says Apple’s steady growth, along with recent price cuts and improved demand in mature markets, has helped it to consistently outgrow the market. Apple, which is the third largest vendor in the United States, ships nearly 2.2 million units.

Worldwide PC shipments during the quarter declined by 1.7% year-on-year at 78.5 million units, says IDC.
