Earlier in 2020, there was a scarcity of available laptops due to demand from people working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic. PC shipments couldn’t keep up and declined by 12.3 per cent during the first quarter of 2020. However, according to Canalys analyst, Ishan Dutt, vendors are starting to recover.
“Vendors, the supply chain, and the channel have now had time to find their feet and allocate resources towards supplying notebooks, which continue to see massive demand from both businesses and consumers,” Dutt said.
Dutt also believes that the resurgence will also help the country recover from the economic effects of the pandemic. “Spending on IT, including investment in PCs, will “be a core driver of economic recoveries in the aftermath of the pandemic,” he said.
