Worldwide PC Forecast Update, 2016–2020: September 2016

This IDC study provides an updated view on the worldwide PC market through the next five years and utilizes data from the 2Q16 PC forecast."Alternative form factors such as detachable tablets have been gradually eating into the demand for PCs, although our near-term outlook on this new form factor has turned slightly more pessimistic versus previous quarters. Despite the slowdown, detachable tablets are still going to pull volume away from notebooks," states Neha Mahajan, senior research analyst at IDC's Devices and Displays group. "With segments within the commercial market showing some signs of improvement in demand, there is still hope that the PC market may be able to recoup from its previous losses in the coming years."
