Ishan Dutt, a Canalys analyst, stated that the outbreak had subsided substantially in recent months.
“Investments in the information technology sector will be critical to the economic recovery after the pandemic.”
A sudden increase in the demand for work and learning PCs has caused PC shipment shortages.
According to Canalys, the lines between work and home are becoming increasingly blurred.
Due to this, it is vital to choose the best device for a given situation.
Differentiating product portfolios to capture key segments like education and gaming will generally also lead to growth.
Whatever the PC market, collaboration accessories, new services, subscription services, and security will continue to expand.

Current global industry data indicates a corresponding decline in PC sales for the first time since 2013.
There were 51.6 million units of PCs shipped globally in the first quarter of 2020.
The top three vendors have maintained their share of the market, despite the effect of COVID-19.
As a result, Mikako Kitagawa, research director at Gartner, explained, “we will see companies and customers extend PC life cycles more consistently.”
