2014 is looking like it will be a very good year for Lenovo. According to industry figures from IDC and Gartner, Lenovo was the number 1 ranked PC company for all of 2013, overtaking giants Dell and HP.
In reporting shipments for 4Q 2013, IDC said Lenovo achieved 18.6% global PC market share compared with 16.1% share for 4Q 2012. This was 9% year over year growth. Gartner reported 18.1% share in 4Q 2013 versus 15.8% share for 4Q 2012 or 6.6% year over year growth. This performance added up to 53.8 million shipments (using IDC numbers) for the full year, a historical high for Lenovo.
Those are extremely impressive figures. In addition to outperforming the PC industry, they also collected nearly 40 awards at CES 2014 from industry experts and media. Who says the PC is dead?
