IDC: PC growth to slow down to 0.9 percent in 2012 after a weak mid-year

John Ribeiro | Aug. 24, 2012
Growth in the PC market is expected to be slower than last year, after mid-year shipments slowed as consumers were hit by weak economic conditions, and also postponed purchases to evaluate Windows 8 and Ultrabook products while considering spending on media tablets and smartphones, IDC said.

IDC now expects worldwide PC shipment growth will average 7.1 percent from 2013 to 2016, down from the 8.4 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) it had previously forecast for 2012 to 2016.
