Worldwide PC shipments up 12% – IDC

Worldwide PC shipments grew by 12.5% in the second quarter of 2007 (2Q07), according to IDC’s Worldwide Quarterly PC Tracker. Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) returned as the fastest growing region with volume increasing more than 20% from the same quarter one year ago. A competitive market in the United States also helped boost overall growth with other regions expanding in line with or slightly behind forecasts. Channel expansion and competition for the consumer and small business segments added to the trend toward Portable systems as key market drivers.

Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) continued to accelerate with Portables growth at about 50% and with the Greater China region being a primary contributor to the regional total as vendors prepared their channels for summer promotions. In addition, nearly every country in the region posted double-digit year-on-year Portables growth.

Got a new PC lately?  Interesting to see Apple growing their market share in the US.
