Lenovo Retained Market Leadership: Counterpoint


The increasing number of gaming laptops and the growing demand for working from home and studying at home drive this general push.

According to market research reports, global PC shipments in the first quarter of 2021 will increase by 45% annually to 75.6 million units. Then HP and Dell. It is expected that deliveries from major PC manufacturers will further increase in the coming months. However, the global chip shortage has affected the supply of critical components.

Data for the first quarter. The period of the past year related to the coronavirus outbreak is one of the main reasons for growth. After the COVID outbreak in the past 19 years is expected to continue to affect the global PC market in the second half of 2021.

In the first quarter of 2021, Lenovo led the market with 24%, followed by HP 23%, Dell 17%, and Apple 9%. , Report counterpoint. According to the report, the overall market momentum is mainly driven by the proliferation of gaming laptops and the growing demand for home office space.

And family segmentation research. However, according to the report, due to seasonal factors, the number of programs has dropped by 14% continuously since the fourth quarter of 2020.

The growing demand for computers (especially laptops) is expected to continue into the second quarter. With a total share of over 85%, it will continue to dominate the market. Counterpoint said that due to big promotions, high-end models might dominate the market when predicting future trends. These models are with higher average retail prices.

However, this growth may harm Counterpoint’s Chrome book shipment growth because by 2021. The market’s annual shipments will reach 333 million units, an annual growth rate of 16.3%.

Despite the forecast growth, the current shortage of chips may have an impact on the market. The percentage difference between the order (final demand) of key components, including integrated power management circuit (IC), display controller I, integrated power management circuit (PMIC), and integrated power management circuit (PMIC), and actual delivery is considered.

However, the largest supply conflicts with the demand gap in the PC segment of integrated power management circuits (DDIC) due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Lenovo maintains market leadership.

As their delivery times (total time from production start to end) have almost doubled. Counterpoint found that although PC-CPU supply began to improve in the first half of the year. Some manufacturers are still struggling to meet the demand for audio codec chips and LAN chips. Shipments of WiFi SoC are also relatively low.

We don’t think there will be any significant increase in the factory’s production capacity in the second half of 2021. And the production time of key IC components is not expected to recover from the current level.

Therefore, PC and ODM brands cannot completely solve bottlenecks and delivery time issues,” said William Lee, a semiconductor and component analyst at Counterpoint. The component supply shortage that began in the second half of 2020 is expected to continue.

After a while, Counterpoint said it should be gradually normalized by the end of the first half of 2020. By 2022 at the end of May, Dell and HP warned when they announced their quarterly results. That, the shortage of chips would seriously affect their PC shipments.

At least until the end of the year, the market showed in January. The highest annual growth rate in ten years.
