Dell has increased its PC workstation market share to 45.5 percent in Q4 2022 from 40.8 percent in Q4 2021.

HP has lost its PC workstation market share to 31.2 percent in Q4 2022 from 33.8 percent in Q4 2021.

Lenovo has also lost its PC workstation market share to 22.7 percent in Q4 2022 from 25 percent in Q4 2021.

The global desktop and mobile workstation market shipments in the fourth quarter of 2022 (22Q4) shrank 22.2 percent compared to a year ago as IT device spending slowed amidst economic concerns and fulfillment of backlogged orders, according to IDC.

In 2022, PC workstation market grew 2.1 percent to nearly 7.7 million units from the previous record of 7.5 million set in 2021.

“After two years of strong purchases, we expect corporate IT to divert away from endpoint devices and we’ll likely see 2023 volume shrink 4.2 percent. New model launches, Windows 11 transition, and other drivers should lead to growth from 2024,” said Jay Chou, research manager, Worldwide Client Devices Tracker.

Dell remained in the top spot, wrapping up 2022 as the only vendor with share gains. Dell’s measured approach to inventory management helped it weather the sector downturn better than others. At number two, HP continued its focus on mobile form factors but was hurt by earlier aggressive channel shipments.

Third place vendor Lenovo saw its share dip for the year due to slowing demand for its premium and value-tier models. ASUS maintained its niche in the desktop workstation space and overtook NEC in 2022 for the fourth spot.

Looking ahead, IDC expects global shipments to decline 4.2 percent year over year in 2023 as the market cools and the focus shifts to inventory clearing and budget discipline. Beyond 2023, expanding workload requirements should stimulate shipments to help drive solid recoveries in 2024 and 2025.
