Dell leads client device market with 1.3 mn units ahead of HP in 2015

Enterprise Client Device Unit Shipments in 2015
Dell continues to lead the enterprise client device market with 1.3 million unit shipments in 2015 ahead of 1.27 million by HP.

IT market research agency IDC said both Dell and HP were affected by an overall softness of the market last year.

Dell has 25.6 percent share in the enterprise client device market, while HP has 25 percent share.

NComputing has achieved above 12 percent growth in volume. Centerm was the beneficiary of some major financial project wins in China, said IDC.

The enterprise client device market in Asia Pacific (excluding Japan) grew over 10 percent in 2015, the only region to see positive growth for the year.

The global enterprise client device market — thin and terminal clients — fell 6.8 percent in the fourth quarter of 2015. Shipments declined 6.9 percent in 2015 as many projects saw cutbacks or delays in the face of a faltering economic outlook and reduced public budgets.

Jay Chou, research manager, Worldwide Enterprise Client Device Trackers at IDC, said: “While there was a certain amount of slowdown expected as many organizations had just refreshed their systems a year or two ago, the extent of economic and currency-related issues had a definite impact in the budget and timeline of other projects which were supposed to be in the pipeline.”

IDC expects an improved outlook ahead, especially as companies begin to think about moving beyond Microsoft Windows 7.
