New Zealand PC Market declines on the back of high channel inventory, IDC reports

In the first quarter of 2019, New Zealand's Traditional PC market experienced a -8.3% year-on-year (YoY) decline in unit shipments, according to the latest IDC Asia/Pacific Quarterly Personal Computing Device TrackerThis follows the 1.5% YoY growth seen in the last quarter of 2018, returning the market to decline after two consecutive quarters of growth.

 

The New Zealand PC market for 2019Q1 saw shipments of commercial PC devices decline -4.8% while consumer devices shrank -12.4% YoY. “The commercial market continues to outperform the consumer market with strong use cases for businesses, whereas consumers are seeing use cases dwindle.”, says Liam Landon, Associate Market Analyst at IDC New Zealand.

 

“Ultraslim and convertible notebooks will continue to take share from traditional notebooks in both market segments, although both the consumer and commercial markets are anticipated to decline with lengthening lifespans of devices as well as increased usage of smartphones.”

 

“High inventory across consumer and commercial notebooks meant some delays on shipments. Government sector projects as well as the first growth for commercial desktops since the end of 2017 helped to offset declines in the commercial market. However, declines for commercial notebooks and other segments meant weakening shipments YoY.”

 

Despite the growth towards the end of 2018, IDC predicts that New Zealand’s Traditional PC market will continue to decline in 2019, with a drop of -6.1% YoY expected. “Shortages on Intel processors should begin to alleviate; despite these reprieves, the market will continue to struggle”, says Landon.
