Mumbai: Sales of personal computers (PC) in the country for the quarter ended September reached almost 2.2 million units, a decline of 3.1% from the corresponding period last fiscal, according to data released by technology researcher IDC India.
However, PC sales, which include desktop and notebook computers, for the quarter marked an increase of 24% over the previous quarter ended June.
The sequential growth was led by demand from government purchase as well as festive season sales.
“The July-September quarter experienced a strong boost from newfound consumer confidence that reflected in increased demand during the festive season,” said Kapil Dev Singh, IDC country manager. “This performance underlines the recovery in the India PC market.”
PC sales have grown for the last three consecutive quarters after dropping from 2.3 million units in the September quarter last fiscal to 1.6 million units in the quarter ended December.
