Worldwide PC Microprocessor Forecast, 2016–2020

This IDC study presents a five-year forecast for the PC microprocessor market. "PC system inventories and a bad economic environment will depress the PC processor market in 2016," said Shane Rau, research vice president for Computing Semiconductors. "However, long-term prospects are not much better as other sources of computing, like smartphone processors and the server processors of the cloud, steal computing cycles from the PC."
