Wachstum in Deutschland lag bei 7,2 Prozent

Laut dem IT-Marktforschungs- und Beratungsunternehmen Gartner wurden im vierten Quartal 2007 in Westeuropa 17,9 Millionen PCs verkauft, was einem Wachstum von 9,7 Prozent gegenüber demselben Zeitraum im Vorjahr entspricht. Dies ist ein geringeres Wachstum als im Gesamtjahr 2007, in dem der PC-Markt um fast 12 Prozent wuchs. HP liegt in Westeuropa im vierten Quartal auf Platz 1 mit einem Marktanteil von 22,6 Prozent, gefolgt von Acer und Dell.

„Der Markt wuchs in den einzelnen Regionen Westeuropas unterschiedlich“, sagt Ranjit Atwal, Principal Analyts bei Gartner. „Während die südeuropäischen Länder Spanien und Portugal ein überdurchschnittliches Wachstum verzeichneten, gab es in den gesättigteren Ländern des Nordens geringere Wachstumsraten. Der übliche Wachstumsschub im vierten Quartal fiel im letzten Jahr insgesamt schwächer aus als erwartet, insbesondere im Desktop-Bereich für Endverbraucher.“

Deutschland: Vorsichtige Verbraucher, Forsche Unternehmen

In Deutschland wurden im vierten Quartal 2007 insgesamt 3,4 Millionen PCs verkauft. Dies entspricht einem Wachstum von 7,2 Prozent im Vergleich zum Vorjahr. Getrieben wurde das Geschäft durch eine starke Nachfrage für mobile Geräte, die 57 Prozent des gesamten Absatzes im vierten Quartal ausmachten. Dies entspricht einer Steigerung von 12 Prozent gegenüber dem Vorjahreszeitraum. Im Gesamtjahr 2007 stiegen die Verkäufe um 10,2 Prozent gegenüber dem Jahr 2006.

Fujitsu Siemens liegt in Deutschland weiterhin mit 15,7 Prozent Marktanteil an erster Stelle, verlor jedoch als einziger Anbieter unter den Top 5 Marktanteile. HP holt mit einer Wachstumsrate von 22,7 Prozent im vierten Quartal stark auf und liegt mit einem Marktanteil von 12,5 Prozent an zweiter Stelle, gefolgt von Acer mit 10,7 Prozent Marktanteil.


Egham, UK, 12 February 2008 — PC shipments in Western Europe totalled 17.9 million units in the fourth quarter of 2007, an increase of 9.7 per cent compared with the same period in 2006. The Western European market saw slower growth in the fourth quarter 2007 compared with an overall average growth of nearly 12 per cent in 2007.

“Western Europe saw varied growth rates across the region,” said Ranjit Atwal, principal analyst at Gartner, based in the UK. Southern European Countries, like Portugal and Spain, continued to exhibit strong growth above the Western European’s average growth, while the more saturated Nordic region saw lower growth overall. The expected consumer boost normally associated with the fourth quarter was less pronounced especially in the consumer desk-based segment.

UK: Desk-based market saw strong decline

PC shipments in the UK totaled 3.3 million units in the fourth quarter of 2007, an increase of 9.6 per cent compared with the same period in 2006.  In 2007, PC shipments in the UK grew 11 per cent compared to 2006.

“The biggest casualty was the desk-based market that declined more than 15 per cent,” Mr Atwal added. “This was the result of weaker demand from the business segment.”

The dynamics in the consumer market were different as users purchased higher specifications rather than just concentrated on price. In general, PC sales in the retail sector were strong during the quarter but many retailers decided to reduce exposure to inventory going into 2008 as the economic environment continued to be uncertain.

Hewlett-Packard increased its market share in the fourth quarter of 2007 but experienced the same slowdown in the desk-based market.

Dell showed signs of recovery that helped it hold onto its market share levels. Dell also saw the benefits of a more focused product branding in the fourth quarter of 2007, especially in the business segment. In the first quarter of 2008, we expect Dell will drive new shipments into its retails’ partners Dixons and Tesco.

France: Lower demand in the consumer market

PC shipments in France totalled 2.8 million units in the fourth quarter of 2007, an increase of 6.6 per cent compared with the same period in 2006.  In 2007, PC shipments in France grew 11.6 per cent compared to 2006.

“The weakness in consumer confidence and demand combined with high levels of PC inventory from the third quarter of 2007 contributed to a weaker performance than anticipated,” said Isabelle Durand, principal analyst at Gartner, based in France.
