Regional PC market slips, but can it arrest the slide?

"The good news is that 2015 should not contract as much as last year."

The Asia/Pacific, excluding Japan, PC market decreased 6.3 per cent to 101 million units in 2014, a slight improvement after falling 10.3 per cent in 2013.

IDC's preliminary results show that during Q4 2014, the market was flat year-on-year, reaching 25.9 million units, which was marginally higher than initial forecasts.

"The good news is that 2015 should not contract as much as last year," says Handoko Andi, Research Manager for Client Devices Research, IDC Asia/Pacific.

"While high retail channel inventory and uncertain economic conditions will still bear down on China, upcoming commercial sector activity should help offset that somewhat.

"India should still have post-elections momentum and yet another large education tender. Indonesia should similarly have post-elections momentum, although high inflation and currency fluctuations are downside risks.”

Lenovo retained the top spot in 2014, bolstered by its home market of China and fueled by aggressive prices in markets like Indonesia.

Dell, the only vendor in the Top 5 to grow annually, jumped to second place after going deeper into key markets like China and India.

HP fell to third place, in part because the education project in India was not as large as in the previous year.

Acer contracted yet again as the vendor struggled to turn itself around.
