PC maker, Lenovo retained its position as the number one PC company in the world with 21 per cent market share, a position the company has held for ten consecutive quarters, statistics from International Data Corporation (IDC) and Gartner has revealed.
Lenovo also saw significant momentum gains in the U.S., where it achieved its highest-ever market share of 13.2 per cent and experienced the largest growth year-over-year of any major vendor at 23.7 per cent.
On this milestone, Gianfranco Lanci, President and Chief Operating Officer, Lenovo says “We are pleased to see results that reflect our continued focus on our PC business, which remains both a strong growth engine for Lenovo and the core of our business.”
According to Lanci, “our PC business is the solid foundation that launched Lenovo as a global technology leader and its success fuels our growth engines in our server and mobile businesses. We have seen increased acceptance of Windows 10 from consumers, and we believe that trend will continue and help drive longer-term demand for new PCs, which perhaps was not the case last quarter as many users opted for the free upgrade rather than buying new.”
He says that while 21 percent worldwide PC market share is a solid achievement, “we are not satisfied, and in a market that is clearly consolidating, we are accelerating the drive for further share gains in PCs by delivering leading technologies, great value, and innovative products to our customers.”
