Apple has shipped 6.811 million PCs in Q2 2023 vs 4.515 million in Q2 2022, achieving the highest growth among the major vendors, with shipments up 51 percent year on year, Canalys report said.
Apple was boosted by the launch of the new 15-inch Macbook Air. But Apple’s strong performance in Q2 2023 was mostly driven by a favorable comparison quarter due to the supply chain disruption it faced last year.
IDC said Apple shipped 5.3 million PCs in Q2 2023 vs 4.8 million in Q2 2022. Apple has benefited from a favorable year-over-year comparison as the company suffered supply issues during 2Q22 due to COVID-related shutdowns within the supply chain, IDC report said.
Apple has shipped 5.293 million PCs in Q2 2023 as compared with 5.308 million in Q2 2022, according to Gartner report. Apple has a PC market share of 8.9 percent in Q2 2023 as compared with 7.4 percent in Q2 2022.
Lenovo, HP, Dell, Apple and Acer are the top five PC suppliers in the world in the second quarter of 2023 with market share of 22.9 percent, 21.6 percent, 16.6 percent, 11 percent and 6.4 percent, respectively.
Lenovo continued to lead the worldwide PC market, but underwent a large shipment decline of 18 percent year on year, dropping to 14.2 million units.
Second-placed HP enjoyed a strong quarter, aided by healthy sales of Chromebooks in the US. It posted a flat performance by shipping 13.4 million units globally.
Dell maintained third place but lost over two points of market share as its shipments declined 22 percent.
Shipments of devices (PCs, tablets and mobile phones) are projected to decline 4.4 percent in 2023, to total 1.7 billion units. In 2022, the devices shipment market declined 11.9 percent, Gartner report said in January.
