65% Drop On PC Market share In 2013

65% Drop On PC Market share In 2013 – Rewind back 3 years to 2010, and we wouldn’t have known that there would be a thing that would create a perfect middle device between our PC and smartphone. The release of the highly-successful iPad and the following wave of tablets, both 7-inch and 10-inch form factors, has caught PC manufacturers by surprise. The demand has been immense for these touch-based handheld devices and since the advent of these tablets; they have simply traumatized PC sales. iPad, Nexus, Kindle, you name it! And we are now getting reports that this trend is likely to be continued through the next year too.

65% Drop On PC Market share In 2013

Canalys researchers report that PC sales are going to drop down to 65% marketshare in 2013, a 7 percent drop from the 72% in 2012. It is clear that Microsoft’s shift to adapting touch in Windows has come a little too late. In a world where Android and iOS are taking over with their App Stores bulging with quality apps, Microsoft’s Windows 8 store seems like a barren land.

Additionally, there are more factors that define the downfall of PC. Here is what analyst Tom Evans has to say about it,

“It is perceived that a PC with a touch-screen is needed to get the best user experience. In the current economic climate, this will be enough to make people delay purchases as they wait for prices to fall.”

According to Canalys, Intel’s new Ultrabook stance is also believed to be affecting PC sales.

“Now buyers must decide between an Ultrabook and a standard notebook, a touch-screen and a non-touch-screen, as well as an increasing array of form-factors, such as clamshell, convertible and hybrid.”

Of course many of you might argue the fact that tablets are not fit for productive work but is that what most-of-the-consumer crowd really wants? If your work consists of just doing video calls, sending/receiving mails, surfing the web, etc. then why not have a light-weight portable tablet that allows you to do all that along with some casual gaming as well? If Microsoft wants to succeed in 2013, it really needs to find a good answer for that.

    I wouldn’t call it the down fall of the PC. Although the tablets are nice to use they do not replace a PC by any stretch. I have two friends that got new laptops with W8 and they both hate them. These tablet style interfaces are ok for a tablet but the interface seems too limiting. Tablets fill a large niche for the PC illiterate and those that want small compact computing power. I find myself always connected to my PC via my ipad – so how does this replace my PC? If anything it’s displacing the laptop market.
