In the third quarter of 2021, the Western European market for traditional PCs, which is customary to include desktops, laptops and workstations, grew by 21% compared to the same period in 2020. A total of 16.3 million systems were shipped during the quarter. Such data are cited by experts from the analytical company Canalys, noting that the increased demand is due to the uncertainty associated with the pandemic. While supply is expected to be limited throughout 2022, Canalys predicts that the region will remain a growth point for the global PC market as uncertainty pushes spending on technology.
HP returned to No. 1 supplier after three quarters in No. 2. During the quarter, they shipped 4.4 million PCs, which corresponds to 27% of the market. The second place was taken by Lenovo, which shipped 4.1 million devices, which corresponds to 25% of the market. The top five also include Dell, Apple and Acer. Their shares are equal to 14%, 12% and 8%, respectively.
