The Indian PC market enjoyed its best quarter ever with a total of 4.5 million desktops, notebooks, and workstations shipped. That’s an increase of 30% compared to last year’s Q3, and in spite of ongoing chip shortages.
For perspective – Q3 of 2021 saw more PCs shipped than in the entire 2019, the year before the pandemic.
Notebooks were the hottest commodity with more than 3.6m units shipped – a 28% increase over Q3 of 2020. Desktop computers saw a sizeable 30% increase over last year’s Q3 as well with some 700 thousand. Despite relatively low numbers, at 90 thousand units, workstations saw a potent increase of 146% year over year.
Breaking down the numbers between manufacturers, HP retained its number one place and increased the number of devices shipped with 1.2m. Dell outpaced Lenovo to take second place.
As a whole, the Indian PC market saw a total of 4.4m shipped units – over 1 million more than last year.
