Apple is only the fifth manufacturer of computers according to the results of 2016
We all talk about the era of the abandonment of computers, and computer sales do fall. In 2016, they fell by 5.7% in comparison with 2015. Unfortunately, it was reflected only on the Apple. The manufacturer of our favorite Mac – the only one of the big five, which demonstrated the drop of sales. The rest fared much better.
According to analysts from Bloomberg that in 2016, Apple has closed the top five largest computer manufacturers. The company took 7.1 percent of the market. The four largest producers looks like: Lenovo, HP, Dell and ASUS. Together they took 65.2 per cent of the market, and unlike Apple, these companies grew in comparison with 2015.
The remaining 27.7 per cent of the market occupied by other manufacturers, which more than 200. These include Samsung, Fujitsu, Microsoft and many others. By the way, in its recent advertising, Microsoft said that Mac users are switching to Surface more actively than ever. Let’s hope that the new MacBook Pro will correct the situation on the market. The last quarter of 2016 for Apple was better than the same quarter of 2015.
