Worldwide shipments of PCs declined 15.3 percent year over year to 71.3 million units in the second quarter of 2022.

This was the second consecutive quarter of lower shipments following two years of growth. The decline was worse than expected as supply and logistics further deteriorated due to the lockdowns in China and persistent macroeconomic headwinds.

“Fears over a recession continue to mount and weaken demand across segments,” said Jitesh Ubrani, research manager for IDC’s Mobile Device trackers. “Consumer demand for PCs has weakened in the near term. Commercial demand also declined as businesses delay purchases.”

“With education PC appetite saturating and consumer demand stagnating, the U.S. PC market is staring at another quarter of double-digit decline across most segments,” said Neha Mahajan, research manager with IDC’s Devices and Displays team.
