Despite its challenges, Indonesia is a huge market and it is the No 1 PC market in South-East Asia for the company, according to Lenovo Indonesia SMB lead Irene Santosa.
The worldwide PC market registered one of its lowest quarterly growth rates in the first quarter of 2016, but Gartner Inc said several profit opportunities exist for PC vendors.
PC shipments in Asia Pacific totalled 107.6 million units in 2015, a 7.7% YoY decrease and a steeper contraction from the 5.7% YoY drop in 2014.
As total PC shipments continue to decline, more vendors are turning towards the gaming PC market to generate interest, according to IDC.
Shipments for the Asia Pacific PC market reached 26 million units in the fourth quarter of 2015, a 1.5% decline from the fourth quarter of 2014.
Worldwide combined shipments of devices (PCs, tablets, ultramobiles and mobile phones) are expected to reach 2.5 billion units in 2015, a 1.5% increase from 2014 and down from the previous quarter's forecast of 2.8% growth, according to Gartner Inc.
Worldwide shipments of hybrid devices are on pace to reach 21.5 million units in 2015, an increase of 70% from 2014, according to Gartner Inc.
Taiwan’s premier technology expo and the world’s second largest computer trade show Computex, which wrapped up last week, is proof that the PC (personal computer) market is still buzzing with activity, in spite of research firm IDC’s projections of a fourth consecutive year of decline for PC shipments.
Worldwide personal computer shipments totalled 83.7 million units in the fourth quarter of 2014, a 1% increase from the fourth quarter of 2013, according to preliminary results by Gartner Inc.
IDC's preliminary results show that the Asia Pacific (excluding Japan) PC market increased 8% from last quarter and declined 5% year-on-year in the third quarter of 2014 to reach 26.6 million units, coming in higher than the research and analyst firm’s initial forecasts.
