  • PC shipments in India grew 49.2% year-on-year to 3.4 million units
  • Lenovo led the market with a whopping 46% market share

The PC market in India saw the shipments of desktop, notebook and workstations grow 49.2% year-on-year to 3.4 million units in the June 2019 quarter, research firm IDC said on Wednesday. The growth was mainly due to commercial segment driven by ELCOT education deal fulfilment under which Tamil Nadu government plans to distribute around 1.5 million laptops to students, it said. Lenovo led the market with 46% share in the June quarter, followed by HP (22%), Dell (14%), Acer (10%), Asus (2%) and others.

IDC said the notebook category grew 81% year-on-year contributing over 74% of the overall shipment in the quarter and the growth was again on account of the ELCOT deal.

IDC expects PC shipments to decline in the September 2019 quarter over April-June since a major portion of the ELCOT deal has been reported in the second quarter.

The commercial market outside ELCOT is also likely to be strong as the government and education projects are expected to materialise, it added.

“Fresh demand by medium and large enterprises is expected to continue. Global refresh orders are also expected to continue among the top brands as Windows 10 refresh would start gaining momentum,” IDC India Senior Research Manager (IPDS and PC) Nishant Bansal said.

In the June quarter, the consumer PC market declined 14% as compared to the year-ago period, IDC said. The gaming PC segment, however, grew 41.1% and continues to be one bright spot in the struggling consumer PC market.

The commercial PC market grew 108% in the June quarter with total shipment at 2.43 million units.
