Worldwide Traditional Desktop Product Detail Forecast, 2016–2020

Worldwide Traditional Desktop Product Detail Forecast, 2016–2020

This IDC study provides an analysis of the distribution of traditional desktops by product detail. The desktop market continues to decline, but seismic shifts are going to occur within the traditional desktop category in the next five years. Namely, the tower category will suffer significant attrition toward small desktops, while the burgeoning ultrasmall desktop category will make impressive gains. We forecast that towers will still retain the lion's share of the traditional desktop market throughout the forecast period. The towers category is where most of the value-oriented, volume-driving offerings reside today."The rapid growth of ultrasmall desktops suggests that there is some strength left in the traditional desktop category," states Linn Huang, IDC research director, Devices & Displays. "However, it will not be enough to offset massive erosion of the tower market over the next several years."
