Tablet Growth Slows In Q1 2014, Windows XP Migration Helps Slow the Desktop and Notebook Decline


Worldwide client PC shipments reached 123.7 million units in Q1 2014, up 5% year on year, according to the latest Canalys research.

Growth in tablet shipments slowed to 21%, yet at 50.8 million units they continue to out-ship notebooks. Tablets accounted for 41% of the market, notebooks 38%. The worldwide decline in notebooks slowed to 7% as Western Europe continued to grow and North America remained flat, partly due to commercial sales improving in both regions. Commercial shipments the world over have been lifted by the end of life of Windows XP, a trend that also influenced desktops, helping shipments to remain flat year on year. Notably, however, notebooks and desktops in China, the world's second largest PC market, declined 13% and 6% respectively compared with the previous year.

In the tablet market, there was strong growth in the Middle East (100%), Greater China (74%) and Central and Eastern Europe (47%), and while more modest, there was positive growth in all other regions with the exception of North America. The US market was adversely affected by a drop in Apple iPad shipments, which fell 40%. This was offset somewhat by 20% growth in China, Apple?s second largest market. Worldwide, iPad shipments in Q1 fell 16% year on year to 16.4 million and accounted for 80% of Apple's total PC shipments. Despite this, Apple continued to lead the global PC market. Its share fell both sequentially and year on year from 20% to 17%, due chiefly to the increasingly competitive tablet market.



Lenovo did well in the quarter, increasing its PC market share from 10% to 12% with 15.0 million units shipped. It achieved solid annual growth in all PC categories and is now placed first, second and third in the notebook, desktop and tablet markets respectively. EMEA was Lenovo's main source of growth this quarter, with its PC shipments there up 61% year on year.

Samsung?s PC shipments suffered and it fell to fourth place. Its exit from the mainstream notebook market and a significant sequential decline in shipments due to mounting inventory both played a part. As a result, HP regained third place. Shipments of 12.9 million units gave it an 11% share of the PC market. It capitalized on the recovery in commercial demand and increased shipments in all product categories during the quarter. After considerable work on its industrial design across its portfolio, notebook shipments grew 7% year on year - the second quarter of growth since Q1 2012. It continues to lead the US notebook market, as well as the major markets in Western Europe, apart from Germany.
