India PC shipments in Q2 plunges 28 percent YOY
Recent findings from IDC shows that India PC shipment stands at 2.55 million units in second quarter, plunging 28 percent year-on-year but rising of 24 percent quarter-on-quarter.
IDC stated that the market remained upbeat buoyed by business purchases, as well as channel intake of low-priced PCs at the end of the quarter.
However, the commercial PC segment emerged stronger than the expected performance with 1.38 million units shipped, growing 34.5 percent QOQ as a clear mandate in elections signaled a mark of recovery in Indian economy, CNET reported.
The annual budget announced by the new government suggests a positive outlook for business, and IDC expects this to influence the near term prospects on enterprise IT spending.
IDC believes that, against last calendar year, business prospects are expected to remain moderately better in the coming six months, the report added.
