PC sales drop 11% in 2022
IDC expects the market to fall further in 2023 by 17%.
Sales of personal computers (PC) in Singapore declined by 11% in 2022, with only one million units shipped to the country.
IDC attributed the slowdown of PC sales in Singapore to “weakening demand across different segments.”
“PC sales in Singapore finally slowed as post-pandemic life returned to normal and spending habits shifted back to leisure activities such as travelling. Inflation is a headwind in the market now, and a lot of demand was fulfilled during the pandemic, making PC purchases no longer a priority,” IDC reported.
“While demand from the very large business segment continued to be strong, small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) purchased PCs on a much smaller scale and with the macroeconomic situation becoming more and more unstable globally, many companies cut down on spending,” IDC added.
Meanwhile, IDC also reported that Lenovo remained the market leader for PCs in Singapore in 2022.
Dell Technologies has climbed to the second spot, overtaking HP Inc., which dropped to third place.
In 2023, IDC expects the PC market in Singapore to fall further by 17% due to inventory corrections, dwindling private-sector demand, and a drop in public-sector projects.
