Vendors in PC monitor market“Whether it was businesses refreshing PCs and monitors as they moved towards Windows 10 or the pandemic pivot towards work from home, these developments gave a much-needed boost to what had been a staid industry,” said Jay Chou, research manager for IDC’s Worldwide Client Devices Trackers.

“However, we now see growing saturation, inflationary pressures from the pandemic and the Ukrainian crisis further accelerating an already cooling environment in 2022, when we expect monitor shipments to shrink 3.6 percent and then stabilize after.”

Dell and Lenovo emerged as the only two companies in the Top 5 to deliver shipment growth in 4Q21. PC monitor commercial shipments declined 2.2 percent in the fourth quarter. The commercial portion of the PC monitor market reported modest losses in the second half of 2021 due to return-to-office trends.
