According to the new statistics revealed by Islamabad diagnostic center, PCs industry is suffering from a severe downfall since the last five years, an official statement disclosed.
The recent studies show marked decrease of 5.7% (from 2015) in the distribution of usual personal computers as only 260 million PCs are transported in the year 2016.
Some factors contribute towards that decline, one of them being the progress in smartphone and tablet industry which has drained out people’s interest from the outdated PCs. Moreover, as no reforms or innovations are being introduced in PC industry, their purchases are lessening.
However, this decline hasn’t affected the leading PC industries including HP, Dell, and Lenovo. HP and Dell being the second and third major PC manufacturer has yielded an upraise of 1.3% and 4.3% respectively in its yearly consignments while meantime Lenovo, the leading industry now a day’s, succeeded in earning 3% increase in its system’s distribution.
On the contrary, Apple has witnessed a severe drop of 9.8% in its 2016 consignment as compared to 2015’s.
According to IDC management, 2017 will be the year of innovations and betterments for PC industry in Pakistan consequently increasing the number of PC purchasers as Smartphone’s progress has reached a saturation point.
