Indian PC market grows 34%: Gartner

The domestic personal computer (PC) market grew by 34.4 per cent in 2004 to take 10.2 per cent share in the Asia- Pacific region, according to global research and analyst firm Gartner Inc. India recorded the second highest shipments in the region with 33.87 lakh units, compared with 25.2 lakh units shipped in the same period a year ago. China topped the sector with shipments of around 1.49 crore units.

``Peaking business confidence based on strong economic growth catalysed PC purchases in both consumer and corporate segments throughout 2004,'' Gartner India Analyst (Computing Systems) said in a release here today.

The top PC vendor in India is Hewlett Packard with a 12.7 per cent market share closely followed by HCL with 12.6 per cent share. The two companies grew at over 84 per cent. IBM and Dell with 7.1 per cent share and 3.5 per cent share take the third and fourth spot respectively. "The top vendors in India posted a remarkable growth garnering a market share mainly from the white-box segment, while also growing the market," it said. From a sector perspective, finance and banking, government and small and medium businesses were the main drivers for the growth.

India was followed by Vietnam posting a 25.9 per cent growth, while New Zealand was in the third slot with a 19.8 per cent growth. China PC market grew by 14.9 per cent. The data included that of desktop PCs and mobile PCs.

Looking forward, Gartner expects the Indian market to grow 29.3 per cent in 2005. "Strong economic indicators on the back of a growth-directed financial Budget make way for healthy PC uptake in 2005," the release said.
