Lenovo has moved to cement its place as the top of the PC market food chain, following encouraging industry analyst reports from both IDC Gartner.

As reported by Reseller News, IDC figures claim that Lenovo strengthened its position as the world’s no.1 PC company with 21 percent*market share, a position the company has held for ten consecutive quarters.

Equally, Gartner studies show that the company also secured the top position in worldwide PC shipments according to forecasts, as its market share increased to 20.3 per cent, despite a 4 per cent decline in shipments in the third quarter of 2015.

Sequentially, the company continued to grow its market share lead over its closest rivals, despite a challenging market and fierce competition from new entrants and form factors.

Notably, Lenovo also saw significant momentum gains in the US, where it achieved its highest-ever market share of 13.2 per cent and experienced the largest growth year-over-year of any major vendor at 23.7 per cent.

“We are pleased to see results that reflect our continued focus on our PC business, which remains both a strong growth engine for Lenovo and the core of our business,” says Gianfranco Lanci, President and Chief Operating Officer, Lenovo.

“Our PC business is the solid foundation that launched Lenovo as a global technology leader and its success fuels our growth engines in our server and mobile businesses.

“We have seen increased acceptance of Windows 10 from consumers, and we believe that trend will continue and help drive longer-term demand for new PCs, which perhaps was not the case last quarter as many users opted for the free upgrade rather than buying new.”

While 21 per cent worldwide PC market share is a solid achievement, Lanci says Lenovo is “not satisfied”, and in a market that is clearly consolidating, “are accelerating the drive for further share gains in PCs”.

To achieve this goal, Lanci says Lenovo will aim to deliver “leading technologies, great value, and innovative products to our customers.”
