Research firm IDC has done some number crunching on PC shipments in 2013, and the resultant numbers are grim. PC shipments in Asia-Pacific (IDC doesn’t include Japan in that) saw a double-digit decline for the first time ever. A total of 108 million desktops and laptops were shipped in 2013, which is down 10 percent from the previous year.
PC shipments in Asia Pacific (excluding Japan) fell by 10% in 2013 to 108 million units, marking the region’s first ever double digit decline in recent years, according to IDC. While Lenovo retained its top spot with around 24.9% market share in the region, it still reported a decline in annual growth by 9.5%. HP was the only PC vendor to see growth, thanks to huge Indian government orders it received during the year.
