Decline of Global Demand for PCs Raise New Concerns

The overall PC market will grow by just 0.9 percent in 2012, as mid-year shipments slow and the global outlook continues to be bleak.

According to the latest market study by International Data Corporation IDC, 367 million PCs will ship into the market this year — that’s up just a fraction of a percent from 2011, marking the second consecutive year of growth below 2 percent.

People that were surveyed are apparently considering spending on other consumer electronics products — such as media tablets and smartphones.
