Why the U.S. PC Market Shrank by 10.6 Percent

The worldwide personal computer PC market saw growth stall in the second quarter of 2012 2Q12, with shipments falling 0.1 percent from a year ago, according to the latest market study by International Data Corporation IDC.

The results are slightly below IDC’s May projections of 2.1 percent year-on-year growth, but in-line with projections of a slow second and third quarter before faster growth by year end.

We don’t expect PCs using Windows 8 to boost growth significantly until the fourth quarter, which leads to a conservative outlook for the third quarter,” said David Daoud, research director, Personal Computing at IDC.
