Starker Preisrückgang schürt das Wachstum in EMEA und im US Markt

EMEA zeigte das stärkste Wachstum mit 23,5 Prozent im Vergleich zum Vorjahr

Laut dem IT-Marktforschungs- und Beratungsunternehmen Gartner wurden im zweiten Quartal 2008 weltweit 71,9 Millionen PCs verkauft; dies entspricht einer Steigerung von 16 Prozent im Vergleich zum Vorjahreszeitraum.

HP blieb weiterhin auf Platz 1 mit einem Marktanteil von 18,1 Prozent. Die Wachstumsrate des Unternehmens liegt mit 17,1 Prozent über dem Durchschnitt des Gesamtmarktes. Dell hatte ein weiteres starkes Quartal mit einem Wachstum von 21,9 Prozent, der Marktanteil beträgt 15,6 Prozent. Auf Platz drei folgt Acer mit einem Marktanteil von 9,4 Prozent.

In der Region Europa, Naher Osten und Afrika (EMEA) wurden im zweiten Quartal 23,1 Millionen Computer verkauft, was einem Wachstum gegenüber dem Vorjahreszeitraum von 23,5 Prozent entspricht. „Der PC-Markt in EMEA hat klar gegen die Rezessionsangst gesiegt. Nur einmal in den letzten fünf Jahren hat es zuvor ein Wachstum von über 20 Prozent gegeben“, sagt Ranjit Atwal, Principal Analyst bei Gartner für die Client Computing Markets Group in EMEA. „Grund für dieses starke Wachstum war hauptsächlich der Preisrückgang, der auch einen Einfluss auf Umsatz und Gewinn haben wird sowie letztendlich die Konsolidierung vorantreibt.“

Auch in EMEA liegt HP mit einem Marktanteil von 19,3 Prozent auf dem ersten Platz, gefolgt von Acer und Dell. ASUS hat zum ersten Mal den Sprung unter die Top Fünf geschafft und Fujitsu Siemens Computers verdrängt, die ein weiteres schwaches Quartal verzeichneten.

STAMFORD, Conn., July 16, 2008 — Worldwide PC shipments reached 71.9 million units in the second quarter of 2008, a 16 per cent increase from the second quarter of 2007, according to preliminary results by Gartner, Inc.

"Mobile PCs continued to lead unit growth across all regions as the average selling price (ASP) of mobile PCs declined sharply relative to desk-based PC ASPs," said Mika Kitagawa, principal analyst for Gartner's Client Computing Markets group. "Economic uncertainties have hit PC revenues, resulting in steep ASP declines, especially in markets such as the United States and the Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) region. The industry could ultimately see a significant wave of consolidation if stronger vendors continue to press their pricing advantage."

HP continued to maintain the No. 1 position with its worldwide PC shipment market share totaling 18.1 per cent in the second quarter of 2008 (see Table 1). HP's growth rate exceeded the industry average in the worldwide market, and its growth rate was little above the industry average in the US.

Dell had another strong quarter with worldwide PC shipments increasing 21.9 per cent in the second quarter of 2008 and its market share reaching 15.6 per cent. The company's growth was fueled by its expansion into retail and other indirect channels. Preliminary results showed Dell achieve over 40 per cent year-over-year growth in mobile shipments for two consecutive quarters.

PC shipments in the United States reached 16.5 million units in the second quarter of 2008, a 4.2 per cent increase from the same period last year. US PC shipments actually accelerated during the quarter, despite continuing US economic woes. However, this acceleration appears to have been achieved at the expense of revenues as vendors appear to have cut prices in response to those woes.

"Home mobile PCs continue to have momentum in the US market. However, ASP declines were greater here than in other segments. The retail space was a harsh pricing environment during the quarter," Ms Kitagawa said. "US professional units look to have been affected by tightening IT budgets as US business responded to growing economic uncertainty. Desk-based PCs gained traction among some professional users. Because desk-based PC deployment costs are still lower than that of mobile PCs, desk-based PCs provide a less expensive option for these buyers with tighter budgets."

Several mini-notebook PCs were introduced in the US market during the second quarter. However, this platform is still emerging and did not significantly contribute to overall shipment growth. Preliminary data shows the mini-notebook segment accounted for less than 3 per cent of US mobile PC shipments.

In the US PC market, Dell continued to be the market leader with PC shipments accounting for 31.9 per cent of the US market in the second quarter of 2008 (see Table 2). HP's growth rate was slightly ahead of the US average, and it appears HP's issues around inventory were resolved in the quarter. Apple's PC shipments grew 38.1 per cent in the quarter. The home PC segment continued to be the strongest driver for Apple, as well as sales into the education segment.
