Global PC shipments grew 3% in Q1 2024, says Counterpoint – with AI expected to continue driving PC sales this year

A report from Counterpoint Research confirms that we’ve just witnessed 3% year-on-year growth in global PC shipments, after two years of decline, with the industry returning to pre-pandemic levels. The change is attributed to the onset of the AI ​​PC era, recovery of shipments in the affected industries and end-user upgrade cycles.

Counterpoint’s report is broadly in line with recent findings from IDC, which reported 8% growth in the first quarter of 2024. Both research groups believe that Lenovo will capture the lion’s share of the global PC market at 23-24% owns, followed by HP and Dell. Apple, Inc. also saw some growth, which may be due to its M3-based systems. These companies are consistent and resilient in maintaining their top four positions in the global market.
