IDC: Traditional PC Market "Further Stabilises"

E-mail Print PDF

The traditional PC market (covering desktops, notebooks and workstations) shows further signs of stabilisation, IDC reports-- global shipments total 67.2 million units in Q3 2017, a slight -0.5% Y-o-Y decline.

Such results are better than previous forecasts of a -1.4% Y-o-Y decline, and are the result of a boost coming from improvements in emerging markets and back-to-school promotions. Even EMEA sees "signs of progress towards stabilisation," with notebooks as chief driver while a growing gaming segment helps keep the desktop market going.

IDC Q3 2017 forecast PC

"The traditional PC market performed much as expected in Q3 2017," the analyst remarks. "Emerging markets rebounded slightly more than anticipated, but overall results reflect the stabilization we expected following component and inventory adjustments. The outlook for Q4 2017 remains cautious, likely with a small decline in volume for the quarter and the year. The gains in emerging regions and potential for more commercial replacements represent some upside potential, although we continue to expect incremental declines in total shipments for the next few years."

Inventory managementThe paper promotes more precision in the discussion of what can be included in the scope of work for fixed, mobile and IT inventory, and the IT section in the standard reflects this new thinking. After all, IT may not be part of a current TEM or MMS engagement, but is included to help clients and solution providers define the scope of the work.

A result of 6 months of contributions from TEMIA thought leaders, the paper identifies a minimum requirement for what should be tracked, managed and reported. It also identifies a second categories of items that are not part of the required standard with items that are "nice to have."
