Reading time ( words)

Total India PC shipments for the second quarter of 2015 (2Q15) stood at 2.19 million units with quarter-on-quarter growth of 1.4% and a year-on-year decline of -14.1%.

The overall consumer PC market recorded 1.15 million units, a drop of -1.3% compared to Q1 2015. "While there are signs of optimism in the market, and even as overall consumer sentiments are improving, discretionary spending levels have yet to witness a makeover," said Manish Yadav, Market Analyst, Client Devices, IDC India. "As a result, inventories continue to build up and vendors are hoping for a seasonal turnaround in Q3 2015."

The commercial PC segment recorded 1.04 million unit shipments in 2Q15, which represents 4.5% growth over the previous quarter. "Various announcements and initiatives made by the government on boosting economic growth had positive impact on the sentiments of the business community. However, in order to sustain this buoyancy, it is vital that implementation of reforms continues at a steady pace," stated Kiran Kumar, Research Manager, Client Devices, IDC India.
