IDC and Gartner both announced today their worldwide PC market share rankings for the 3rd quarter of 2015. Lenovo strengthened its position as the world’s #1 PC company with 21 percent* market share, a position the company has held for ten consecutive quarters. Sequentially, the company continued to grow its market share lead over its closest rivals, despite a challenging market and fierce competition from new entrants and form factors. Notably, Lenovo also saw significant momentum gains in the U.S., where it achieved its highest-ever market share of 13.2% and experienced the largest growth year-over-year of any major vendor at 23.7%.
The following statement can be attributed to Gianfranco Lanci, President and Chief Operating Officer, Lenovo:
“We are pleased to see results that reflect our continued focus on our PC business, which remains both a strong growth engine for Lenovo and the core of our business. Our PC business is the solid foundation that launched Lenovo as a global technology leader and its success fuels our growth engines in our server and mobile businesses. We have seen increased acceptance of Windows 10 from consumers, and we believe that trend will continue and help drive longer-term demand for new PCs, which perhaps was not the case last quarter as many users opted for the free upgrade rather than buying new.
While 21 percent worldwide PC market share is a solid achievement, we are not satisfied, and in a market that is clearly consolidating, we are accelerating the drive for further share gains in PCs by delivering leading technologies, great value, and innovative products to our customers.”
