PC sales growth sags at 3.8% in 2011

PC shipments by end of 2012 are expected to reach 404 million units, 10.9 per cent increase from 2011. PC sales growth for both 2011 and 2012 has been reduced from earlier projections, which were 9.3 per cent for 2011 and 12.8 per cent growth for 2012.

The lower outlook is largely due to sharply downgraded forecasts for Western Europe and the US in the second half of the year, Gartner said.

Total unit shipments in 2012 are expected to barely reach 400 million units, which was originally a target for 2011.
