Notebooks continue to drive growth in worldwide PC market

Shipments of PCs to the saturated U.S. market may be declining somewhat, but the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East, Africa) gave the worldwide PC market a big boost in the third quarter, according to figures released Wednesday by IDC.

PC shipments grew 15.5 percent worldwide in the past quarter. Growth in the EMEA regions, led by Hewlett-Packard and Acer, was paced by a strong demand for notebooks and back-to-school promotions, leading to the best growth rates in the region in the past two years.

“The issue is that it continues to be notebooks that are driving strong growth for the overall market. It’s happening on the consumer and enterprise sides,” said Bob O’Donnell, IDC vice president for clients and displays. “Consumers increasingly are voting for notebooks.”
