Added On:2/16/2012 10:32:00 AM

According to a latest report, the combined desk-based and mobile PC market in India has recorded nearly 2.5 million units in Q4 2011. If reports are to be believed the latest stats indicated that the PC market has reported a 6. 5 percent decline from previous data.  

Sources informed that there is decline of 32 percent in desktop market, while mobile PCs grew 12 percent which is helping arrest the decline.  

Brands including Dell, Lenovo, HP and Acer contributed 15.5 percent, 13.1 percent, 12.4 percent and 12.1 percent respectively PC shipments in Q4 of 2011. 

Stats revealed that Lenovo and Dell have recorded 28 percent and 11 percent growth in unit shipments, respectively, while HP has witnessed a depressing growth of 26 percent compared to Q4 2010.

Apart from the multinational PC makers, local vendor HCL accounted for 5.5 percent of the PC shipments, a whopping 34 percent year-on-year decline over Q4 2010.

Analysts believe, the hard-disk drive (HDD) shortage due to the floods in Thailand has significantly impacted the desktop market which declined 18 percent year-on-year in Q4. 

Analysts further added, uncertainty in future of PCs is still there with the  mounting demand for handheld computing devices.
