Worldwide PC Forecast Update, 2016–2020: December 2016

This IDC study provides an updated view on the worldwide PC market through the next five years and utilizes data from the 3Q16 PC forecast."Rise in shipment volumes across worldwide regions may indicate strengthening of the overall PC market, but it may just be telling the story from the supply side for now," states Neha Mahajan, senior research analyst at IDC's Devices and Displays group. "With channels stuffing inventory ahead of the holiday season and due to anticipated shortage of PC components, it needs to be seen if the holiday demand is good enough to absorb it all or does the PC market usher into the new year in a poor inventory situation."
