Global SMB PC Shipments Total 120.1 Million Units in 2010, a Growth Rate of 10.4% Over 2009, Says Techaisle

SAN JOSE, Calif. Feb. 2

Germany

Global SMB overall PC Penetration at the end of 2010 was 59%; 37% was in the Emerging Markets – a penetration rate which is forecast to reach 50% by 2014. PC penetration is calculated as the number of SMBs actively using at least one PC divided by the total number of SMBs.  

By format type, Desktop PCs are still SMBs’ choice of device type with unit sales equaling 61.3 million (51% of world total). Notebook PCs totaled 54.3 million (45%), and Netbooks was 4.5 million. However, Notebooks are forecast to exceed Desktop shipments in 2011. Data excludes Tablet PCs – such as Apple iPad.

BRIC Countries accounted for nearly 30% of the Global SMB PC Shipments. The preliminary regional breakout of SMB PC shipments is:

Growth rate in Mature Markets was hindered by uncertain business environment and lack of hiring. The immediate outlook, however, seems promising with Techaisle’s recent surveys revealing that Small businesses view IT as key contributor for business growth and empowerment and they have an increasing desire to refresh IT, migrate to Windows 7 and build capabilities for Cloud Computing. Emerging Market countries’ growth came from increasing PC to employee ratio as well as improved PC penetration among SMBs.
