Abschwung in den USA beeinträchtigt weltweiten PC Absatz in diesem Quartal nur minimal

Laut dem IT-Marktforschungs- und Beratungsunternehmen Gartner wurden im ersten Quartal 2008 weltweit 71,1 Millionen PCs verkauft, dies entspricht einem Anstieg von 12,3 Prozent im Vergleich zum ersten Quartal 2007.

„Das Ergebnis in den USA entspricht unserer Erwartung, dass der PC Markt leicht von der Rezession beeinträchtigt war, obwohl es keine grundlegenden Veränderungen im Markt gibt,“ sagt Mika Kitagawa, Principal Analyst bei Gartner’s Client Computing Markets Group. „In den Regionen Europa, Mittlerer Osten, Afrika (EMEA) und Asien/Pazifik sind die Ergebnisse, durch das solide Wachstum bei Notebooks, besser als erwartet. In Lateinamerika setzt sich das starke Wachstum dank der hohen Konsumausgaben weiter fort.“

Hewlett Packard hat seine Marktführereschaft im ersten Quartal 2008 weiter ausgebaut. Der Marktanteil von HP erhöhte sich auf 18,3 Prozent, obwohl die regionalen Ergebnisse durchmischt waren. HP kann stabiles Wachstum in EMEA und anderen Regionen verzeichnen, wohingegen sie bei der Steigerung des Absatzes in den USA zu Kämpfen hatten. Dell kann das zweite Quartal in Folge mit zweistelligen Wachstumsraten im weltweiten Markt aufweisen.

In EMEA wurden 24,8 Millionen PCs verkauft, dies entspricht einem Wachstum von 14,9 Prozent im Vergleich zum ersten Quartal 2007.

Hewlett Packard übertraff seine Ergebnisse in EMEA erneut in diesem Quartal und verzeichnete Wachstum bei den Desktop und Notebook Plattformen. Trotz der Erhöhung des Marktanteils auf über 14 Prozent, weißt Acer den geringsten Zuwachs unter den Top Anbietern auf. Toshiba verdeutlicht das Wachstum unter den Notebook Anbietern und zeigt die besten Ergebnisse unter den Top 5 Anbietern.

Im Gegensatz zu den vorherigen Quartalen ist überall ein starker Zuwachs bei Notebooks zu verzeichen, wovon alle Anbieter profitieren. Lenovo, ASUS und Sony erreichen Wachstumsraten, die weit über dem Marktdurchschnitt liegen.

STAMFORD, Conn., April 16, 2008 — Worldwide PC shipments totaled 71.1 million units in the first quarter of 2008, a 12.3 per cent increase from the first quarter of 2007, according to preliminary results by Gartner, Inc.

“The U.S. results were in line with our expectation, indicating that the PC market was modestly affected by the U.S. recession, although there was no fundamental change in market conditions,” said Mika Kitagawa, principal analyst for Gartner’s Client Computing Markets group. “The Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) and Asia/Pacific regions showed stronger than expected results, fueled by solid mobile PC growth across most countries. Latin America continues its rapid growth due to consumer spending.”

Hewlett-Packard extended its lead during the first quarter of 2008 (see Table 1), as its worldwide market share increased to 18.3 per cent, compared to a year ago. However, its regional performance was mixed. HP registered solid growth in EMEA and other regions while it struggled to increase shipment volumes in the US market.

Dell registered its second consecutive quarter of double-digit growth in the worldwide market. Almost all regions grew higher than the regional average. Rapid retail expansion, as well as channel business, contributed to the solid shipment growth.

US PC shipments reached 15.2 million units in the first quarter of 2008, a 3 per cent increase from the same period last year. These results were on target with Gartner’s latest forecast. “The preliminary results show that the price pressure during the quarter was greater than we expected,” Ms Kitagawa said. “Indications are that the market felt the squeeze in the second half of the quarter. The US market is softening and this can potentially hasten downward price pressure and further intensify competition for the rest of 2008.”

“Home mobile PC growth continued to drive US PC growth,” Ms Kitagawa said. “Despite declining consumer confidence, US consumers did not put off mobile PC purchases as evidenced by solid mobile growth during the first quarter. This growth was stimulated in part by aggressive price cuts.”

Dell extended its lead in the US PC market with its market share reaching 31.4 per cent (see Table 2). Dell’s channel program, Partner Direct, launched in December 2007, started yielding dividends, as well as its retail expansion. HP registered its lowest year-on-year growth since the Compaq merger in 2003.

Acer is trying to shift its target market from low-end to mid-range systems, and the shift has adversely affected Acer’s shipment volume. Gartner’s early results indicate that Apple experienced the strongest growth rate among the top five vendors in the US market. Apple enjoyed strong retail sales, and there were indications that Apple showed decent growth in the professional market as well.
