  • Published:
  • 33 Pages
  • IDC

This IDC study presents an updated look at the worldwide PC marketplace going forward. It incorporates the latest quarter of 4Q14, with the forecast out to 2019. It is valid as of March 2015 and provides forecast and growth figures for PC shipments at the worldwide level and for key regional markets.

"The launch of Windows 10, slowdown of the tablet market, and new product upgrades, all these factors will help PC sales," says Rajani Singh, senior research analyst, IDC's United States Quarterly PC Tracker program. "We are not expecting drastic change in the PC market outlook as emerging regions continue to struggle with exchange rate fluctuations, inflation, and other macrofactors."
