The site’s financial analyst, Edith Reads, comments:

Shipment volume in 2022 and 2023 dwindled considerably mainly due to waning consumer demand for PCs in the wake of a detrimental economic crisis with inflations flaring up. This trend has raised concerns among manufacturers, suppliers, and analysts, who are now reassessing the future trajectory of the PC market.

PC sales in 2023 started their descent early, with the first quarter seeing a 29% freefall compared to the same timeframe in 2022. Global shipments slipped to 56.9 million units, reverting to pre-pandemic levels before the industry’s record-setting 342 million shipments in 2021. Unfortunately, the sluggish pace set by Q1 2023 sales carried through the year.
