PC sales may remain muted in Jul-Sept: IDC

Sales of PCs, which include desktop, mini-notebooks and other portable personal computers, are expected to be muted in the July-September quarter on account of subdued spending from the government and corporate sector, research firm IDC has said.

However, it projected that consumer PC sales may light-up in the same period helped by the upcoming festive season.'PC business continues to thrive on wafer thin margins and it is still early to comment on the success of new form factors, which were anticipated to drive the overall value of this business.

'Also, outside special projects, demand from enterprises and government remain largely suppressed painting a gloomy scenario on commercial PC business, in the near future,' IDC Market Analyst Manish Yadav said. PC demand in one of the world's fastest emerging markets remains a matter of concern, IDC said.
