The PC market saw a bump in overall growth in the second quarter of 2020 due to strong mobile demand as well as supply chains recovering from the coronavirus pandemic.

Mikako Kitagawa, research director at Gartner, says that the overall growth of the market in the second quarter was due to retailers restocking units as well as the increased demand from businesses and schools working and learning from home.

“The second quarter of 2020 represented a short-term recovery for the worldwide PC market, led by exceptionally strong growth in EMEA … After the PC supply chain was severely disrupted in early 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some of the growth this quarter was due to distributors and retail channels restocking their supplies back to near-normal levels … Additionally, mobile PC growth was particularly strong, driven by several factors including business continuity for remote working, online education and consumers’ entertainment needs. However, this uptick in mobile PC demand will not continue beyond 2020, as shipments were mainly boosted by short-term business needs due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
