PC shipments fell to pre-pandemic levels

According to two analysis companies, shipments of PCs and laptops fell to pre-pandemic levels.

Statistics from Canalys show that shipments of PCs and laptops fell by 32.6% worldwide. A total of 54 million units are reported to have been shipped. According to the company, shipments will then increase again from mid-2023 as the older devices purchased during the pandemic are replaced.


The biggest loser should be Apple. Sales of Apple's MacBooks fell 29%, according to the latest quarterly report of the company, and are expected to continue to fall this quarter.


Reasons for the drop would include employees and students already buying equipment during the pandemic. The economic environment also had an impact on shipments, especially with rising interest rates.


However, there was an upside to the fact that shipments declined, according to Canalys. Supply chains were able to take a breath and companies can diversify their manufacturing locations to counteract geopolitical tensions. PC manufacturers are looking at options to manufacture their products outside of China.
