According to Gardner’s preliminary results, global PC exports in the fourth quarter of 2021 were 88.4 million units, down 5% from the same period in 2020. This is the first year decline after exports of these devices continued to grow for six quarters, while PC exports reached 339.8 million units in 2021, an increase of 9.9% over 2020.

Lenovo’s global PC exports fell by almost 12% in the fourth quarter of 2021, the company’s first annual decline since the first quarter of 2020. The decline is attributed to the slowdown in the US market, reduced supply and demand for Chromebooks, and problems. Lenovo’s global PC exports. Distribution chains limit Lenovo’s ability to deliver computers to corporate customers. These factors contributed to HP’s exports declining by 4% year-on-year, but strong growth in the Asia-Pacific market played a role in mitigating the slump in its export growth.
Dell gained a large market share during this period after achieving higher growth rates in the fifth consecutive quarter. With strong performance in Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Asia-Pacific, the company’s exports crossed 17 million units for the first time in its history.
“The sharp decline in the U.S. PC market, continued supply chain issues and a significant decline in demand for Chromebooks led to lower exports in the fourth quarter,” said Mikako Kitakawa, Gartner’s research director. This may be a sign of the end of an era of massive increases in the level of demand for personal computers that exceeded all expectations, which was led by the spread of the corona epidemic.
