  • HP came in second place with a market share of 24 percent
  • Others in the top five were Dell, Acer, and Asus
  • Shipments of tablets increased by 41% 

According to a survey by market research firm Canalys, shipments of Personal Computer in India increased by a significant 34 percent during the three-month period from July to September (Q3) in 2021. 


Lenovo laptops and PCs accounted for the lion's share of domestic PC shipments, with HP taking second place, followed by Dell, Acer, and Asus rounding out the top five places in the industry of Laptops, PCs, and notebooks. 


The total number of PCs, Laptops, and notebooks, as well as workstations, shipped in India during the period under consideration, reached a new high of 5.3 million units. 


According to Canalys, the growth was boosted by general confidence and accelerated economic recovery in India, particularly among small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and larger firms.


However, according to the most recent data by Canalys, PCs shipments in India reached a record-high of 5.3 million units in the third quarter of 2021, despite supply chain difficulties. 


There are 0.6 million desktop computers, 3.5 million notebook computers, and 1.2 million tablets in total. Notebook shipments surged by a record 31 percent year on year, while tablet shipments increased by 41 percent year on year, according to the International Data Corporation.  


During the third quarter of 2021, the shipment of desktop computers increased by 29 percent year on year. The coronavirus-induced pandemic, which stimulated the use of hybrid learning models, is credited with driving the increase in demand for personal computers. 


According to the Canalys research, Lenovo, Samsung, Apple, Acer, and Huawei were the top five tablet shippers in the world in terms of tablet shipments.


For the first time since Q4 2020, Lenovo has edged over HP to take first place in the entire Personal Computer (PC) market (which includes tablet computers). A 31 percent increase in annual growth was achieved, and it captured 27 percent of the market of PCs and Tablets. In the third quarter of 2021, the company shipped approximately 600,000 tablets.


HP, which placed second on the list, shipped approximately 1 million HP notebooks in the third quarter of 2021. During the time under review, the vendor based in the United States experienced yearly growth of 31 percent and captured 24 percent of the market share.


According to the Canalys research, Dell ranked third with yearly growth of 44 percent, which was mostly driven by Dell notebook sales, which increased by 50 percent year on year. 


It also had a 13.7 percent share of the overall market. Dell's dominance in the commercial market has been reinforced by the company's 32 percent rise in this segment.


Acer, another key player in the industry, finished in fourth place despite seeing a 96 percent increase in shipments year on year. According to the survey, Acer's laptop shipments have nearly doubled year on year to 229,000 units, giving the business a 7.5 percent market share in the notebook industry.

Asus experienced a 41 percent yearly growth rate and increased its market share by 7.1 percent. A total of 363,000 Asus Laptops were shipped by the company.


According to Canalys Research Analyst Ashweej Aithal, seasonal increases in consumer demand have bolstered shipments in consumer channels, while an increase in enterprise and small and medium-sized business procurement has ensured healthy growth in all segments.


"Demand for tablets and notebooks is projected to stay strong as long as government and educational tenders remain strong. Demand, on the other hand, will continue to be unmet on an individual basis. 


It is an ambitious objective, but one that must be achieved in order to ensure that every child whose education has been disrupted as a result of the pandemic has access to a computer in the future. We run the danger of jeopardizing the future of our employees," Aithal stated.
