This statistic highlights PC shipments by Vendor. Research firm Canalys defines PCs as Desktop, Notebook or a Workstation systems. The largest PCs vendors at the end of 2020 happen to be Acer, Apple, Dell, HP, Lenovo amongst a few other names. Lenovo leads the pack with HP close behind it in the second spot and Acer coming in at the third spot. Industry shipments during Q1 2020 came in at 53.6 million units, which was nearly 8% down on a year over year basis due to the COVID-19 outbreak. However, the PC industry shipments rebounded sharply in the subsequent Q2 and Q3 of 2020.

As far as PC shipments by vendor break-up is concerned:

  • Lenovo accounts for about 24.22% share in the PC market. Lenovo shipped approximately  19.27 million during Q3 2020, up 11% year over year.
  • HP accounts for about 23.50% share in the market. Its shipments for Q3 2020 stood at 18.66 million, up 11.5% year over year.
  • Dell shipments, on the other hand, shrank by 0.7% year over year. Its shipments for the period came in at 11.9 million units which represented a 15% market share in the PC market.
  • Apple accounts for about 7.31% share in the PC market for PC shipments. Its shipments grew at the fastest pace in our study group, rising 18.5% year over year during Q3 2020. This was an impressive feat given that it managed to grow shipments at a staggering pace in spite of its generally-lofty price points.
  • Acer has a relatively small grasp over the industry with a moderate 6.61% PC market share. However, it rapidly gained ground in Q3 2020 with an impressive, second-best, shipment growth figure of 15%.

Here’s the complete PC shipments by Vendor dataset for Q3 2020:

Shipments (in Mn) Shipment Growth Market Share Market Share Change (bps)
Lenovo 19.27 11.3% 24.3% -9.5
HP 18.66 11.5% 23.6% -5.9
Dell 11.989 -0.7% 15.1% -190.8
Apple 6.372 18.5% 8.0% 45.8
Acer 5.638 15.0% 7.1% 19.8
Others 17.277 19.5% 21.8% 140.7

It’s evident that Dell lost a significant amount of market share (190 basis points) whereas Apple gained ground during the period with an increase of almost 46 basis points.

For the record, Apple hadn’t released its new line of ARM-based Macs, MacBooks and iMacs by Q3 2020-end which means that most of its market share gains were driven by its relatively dated machines that came equipped with Intel-based chips. The COVID-19 pandemic has encouraged people to shift to the work-from-home environment and also disrupted supply chains across the globe. This might have played a vital role in the market share shake-up as seen above.
