Global shipments of PCs in the third quarter of 2020 grew by 12.7% year-on-year to reach 79.2 million units, the technology analyst firm Canalys says, adding that the rise, due to the coronavirus pandemic, was the highest seen in the last 10 years.

Global personal computer shipments fell by 8% in the first quarter of 2020 year-on-year, the biggest decline since 2016, despite demand soaring due to the increase in working from home and online education, the tech research firm Canalys says, adding that production and logistical issues due to the coronavirus crisis caused big delays.
After eight years of falls, the global PC market recorded its first full year of growth in 2019, with shipments of 268.1 million units. a rise of 2.7% on 2018.
Shipments of desktops, notebooks and two-in-ones will experience an overall decline in 2019 but there will be some relief as there will be a second-half increase of 0.4% against the second half of 2018, the analyst firm Canalys has forecast.
Shipments of PCs in 2019 will show a small uptick in the Asia-Pacific and North America regions compared to 2018, the technology analyst firm Canalys says, with overall global growth forecast to be about 0.3%.
