Mac sales decreased in 2019

Market research firm IDC released data for the fourth quarter of 2019, showing sales of personal computers for this quarter. Computer shipments rose 4.8% to 71.8 million devices.

This number represents the highest sales of personal computers in the past four years, but Apple has not benefited from industry-wide growth.

In the fourth quarter of 2019, Lenovo was the first company to achieve 17.8 million units with an annual growth rate of 6.5%. HP came second with 17.17 million units, followed by Dell with 12.46 million units.

Apple ranked fourth, and IDC estimates that 4.7 million Macs were shipped in the fourth quarter of 2019, down 5.3% year on year. According to IDC data, Apple holds a 6.6% share in the hardware market, compared to 7.3% in the fourth quarter of 2018.

However, Apple's ongoing dynamic development in the iPhone and iPad tablets has offset the challenges Apple faces in the Mac space.

According to IDC data, global PC shipments grew 2.7% during the year. This was the first annual increase in PC shipments since 2011, but Apple declined 2.2% during 2019, with shipments reaching 17.76 million devices annually.

On the other hand, market research firm Gartner provided detailed data on computer sales, as Gartner found that global PC shipments increased 2.3% in the fourth quarter of 2019 and rose 0.6% over the year.

The company estimates shipping worldwide is around 70.6 million units. For Apple, Gartner announced that shipments of 5.26 million Macs decreased 3% year-on-year and that the company's market share was 7.5%. ,

Gartner estimates that Apple has shipped about 18.35 million units for the year 2019 as a whole, which is slightly more optimistic than the IDC.
