PC Units Sales Are Expected to Fall 1.3% in 2013

Published: March 5, 2013

According to the market research company IDC, after a 3.7% fall in 2012, the shipment of PC units worldwide is expected to drop 1.3% during the current year.

In a press release IDC states that the reasons for this prediction are a continued pressure from tablets and an apathetic reception to Windows 8, which is designed to be used with touchscreen components that are not yet widely available in the market.

The research recognizes that "Windows 8 and a more varied and less expensive offering of ultrathin notebooks" have revived the demand of PC Units, but this was not enough to prevent the global falling in sales.
