Worldwide PC Market Expected to Slump in 2016 and 2017 - Richard Chang, THE Journal

Worldwide PC shipments are expected to decline by 73 percent year over year in 2016, according to a recent forecast by the International Data Corporation’s (IDC) “Worldwide Quarterly PC Tracker.” The outlook continues to predict progressively smaller declines through 2017, followed by stable volume in 2018. However, growth in 2016 is now expected to be about 2 percent below earlier projections, as conditions have been weaker than expected. Growth in the first quarter of 2016 came in at -12.5 percent, below IDC’s forecast of -11.3 percent. Impediments such as weak currencies, depressed commodity prices, political uncertainty and delayed projects continue to constrain shipments.
