The combined desk-based and mobile PC market in India totalled nearly 2.2 million units in the second quarter of 2015, a 13 per cent fall over the second quarter of 2014.

White boxes (including parallel imports), which accounted for 44 per cent of the overall desktop market, fell 7 per cent in the second quarter of 2015 compared to the same period last year.

In the second quarter, mobile PC sales declined 18 per cent year-on-year due to a deeper slack in consumer demand, according to a Gartner study.

“Consumers accounted for 48 per cent of total PC sales in the second quarter of 2015,” said Vishal Tripathi, research director at Gartner.

”In the absence of any substantial demand from enterprises this quarter, the Indian PC market performed dismally, re-emphasising the fact that sentiments were not positive in the second quarter of 2015. The enterprise segment might witness some growth going forward due to government and education projects, however there might not be a significant bounce back,” he added.

HP maintained the no 1 position, despite a decline in market share in the second quarter of 2015.

Lenvo experienced the largest increase in market share, as it accounted for 18.1 per cent of PC shipments in India in the second quarter of 2015, up from 14 per cent share in the same period last year. Lenovo’s growth primarily came from the consumer PC segment where the company grew 59 per cent.
