IDC forecast on PC and tablet business in 2023
IDC expects 2024 to be a year of recovery with PC and tablet shipments growing 3.6 percent compared to 2023 and surpassing pre-pandemic levels as total volume reaches 417.7 million units.

Tablet shipments are expected to drop 12.3 percent to 142.3 million in 2023. PC shipments are expected to dip 11.2 percent to 260.8 million in 2023.

“The sunsetting of Windows 10 is expected to drive PC refreshes in 2024 and 2025 while Chromebooks and Android tablets benefit from educational deployments and refreshes,” said Jitesh Ubrani, research manager for IDC’s Mobility and Consumer Device Trackers.

Apple’s lack of broad adoption among commercial buyers may lead to Microsoft- and Google-based platforms outperforming Apple’s products over the next two years.

“This year will be about resiliency for personal computing device vendors,” said Linn Huang, research vice president, Devices and Displays. “Surplus inventory, declining demand, and receding macros will continue applying negative pressure on both volumes and ASPs, before returning to growth mode in both departments in the subsequent two years.”
