Global PC shipments up 3.1pc YoY in Q4 2021

Global PC shipments reached 90.3 million in Q4 2021 to maintain their year-on-year growth momentum at 3.1 per cent, a new report has said. According to Counterpoint Research, the situation on the component supply and logistic fronts continued to improve but at a slow pace. The shipment forecast for Q1 2022 remains optimistic, mainly due to a solid demand and improving component supply.

In Q4 2021, the supply gap for the most important PC components, such as power management IC, Wi-Fi and I/O interface IC, narrowed. Lenovo continued to lead the global PC market in Q4 2021 with a 24 per cent share, slightly shy of its share in Q4 2020 but still having its highest unit sales in 2021 at 21.7 million.
