IDC: PC market rises 19 percent in Q2 in Asia-Pacific

Lenovo has continued to dominate the Asia-Pacific PC market as preliminary Q2 figures from analyst firm, IDC, show a return to growth after two quarters of decline.

The region (excluding Japan) experienced a 19 percent quarter-on-quarter rise for 8 percent year-on-year growth in the second quarter of the 2009 calendar year to hit 19.9 million units shipped; beating forecasts by six percent.

Netbooks and laptops drove most of the growth with the South-East Asian market leading the pack.

Lenovo maintained its leading market share position with 18.5 percent (up from 16.3 percent in Q1 for year-on-year growth of 7.3 percent), while HP was second (16.2 percent, up from 15.6 percent in Q1 with 25.1 per cent year-on-year growth). Dell came in third with Acer not far behind.

In a statement, IDC Asia-Pacific director personal systems research, Bryan Ma says China’s spending helped boost the region.

“Ongoing consumer interest in portable PCs will continue to be the key moving forward, especially as both low-cost mini-notebooks and new ultra-thin notebooks help to drive the market into next year," he says.

Last week, IDC reported strong interest in portable computers, including netbooks and laptops, helped mitigate the effects of the recession, though worldwide PC shipments still fell by 3.1 percent from the same quarter a year earlier, to 66 million units. IDC had originally projected a drop of 6.3 percent.
