Acer leads growth in PC shipments

Records double digit growth despite overall industry decline

Acer has posted the highest level of growth among top PC makers, recording double digit growth despite a 1.4 per cent overall decline.

The latest preliminary data from IDC for the third quarter of 2014 showed Acer has improved on its year-on-year worldwide PC shipment with growth at 11.8 per cent.

This was in contrast to the overall industry decline of 1.4 per cent.

Quarter-on-quarter, Acer saw a 12.6 per cent rise, which also surpassed the industry average of 5.2 per cent.

In both YoY and quarter-on-quarter shipments, Acer was one of only two brands among the top 10 players, to accomplish double-digit growth, demonstrating the company’s steady progress.

The third quarter preliminary data also showed that Acer has performed well in the worldwide Commercial PC market.

For Commercial Total PC shipments, Acer attained 18.2 per cent growth year-on-year compared to the industry decline of 1.2 per cent. Quarter-on-quarter, it achieved 16.1 per cent growth.

Both rates represented the highest growth rates among the top 5 players.

Furthermore, in the Commercial Portable PC market, Acer saw 37 per cent year-on-year growth compared to the industry average of 0.2 per cent; QoQ, Acer achieved 15.8 per cent, exceeding the industry average of 9.4 per cent.

In both measurements, Acer demonstrated the fastest growth rates among the top 10 players.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
