PC market grew 29% in 2004-05: IDC

The Indian PC market grew 29 per cent in 2004-05 with sales of over 3.6 million units, according to IDC India's quarterly PC tracker report.

The market was fuelled by strong demand from the notebook and consumer desktop markets.

"Consistent fall in notebook prices coupled with innovative schemes and promotions led to the growth. There were massive investments in the private educational sector that provided the momentum for growth in this market. For notebooks there was an increase in run rate business in the last month of the quarter," IDC said in a press statement. Uncertainty about the implementation of VAT, anticipation of price drops post-WTO and fluctuations in the supply of components did not dampen the overall growth.

While the number of desktops sold was 33,57,424, the figure for notebooks was 2,21,390 and 67,093 for X-86 servers, totalling 36,45,907 units. HCL led the desktop market while HP led the notebook PC market. In the overall PC market, HP claimed the number one spot followed by HCL and IBM.

"On a base of three million unit shipments, a further growth of nearly 30 per cent is no mean achievement and the Indian PC industry needs to be complimented," IDC said.

The overall desktop segment, comprising consumer and commercial desktops grew 19 per cent in 2004-05. The consumer desktop market in India grew 22 per cent year-on-year in the first quarter of 2005. The commercial desktop segment grew 14 per cent year-on-year basis to total at 6,08,000 units during the first quarter.

Notebook sales grew 80 per cent during 2004-05, driven by corporate and government demand while X86 server shipments in India grew an 26 per cent year-on-year.
