Worldwide Quarterly PCD market Tracker from the international technology research & consulting firm predicts that in Q1 2023, 4.8 mln units will be shipped throughout the region.
The Middle East and Africa (MEA) personal computing devices (PCD) market, which includes desktops, notebooks, workstations, and tablets, is predicted to experience a decline of 18.9% on an annual basis in the first quarter of 2023, according to International Data Corporation’s (IDC) analysis of the market.
The most recent Worldwide Quarterly PCD market Tracker from the international technology research and consulting firm predicts that in Q1 2023, 4.8 million units will be shipped throughout the region. IDC anticipates a total of 7.6 million units to be shipped throughout the course of 2023, a 10.9% year-over-year decline in shipments.
“Looking at 2023 overall, the biggest decline by far is expected to be seen in Egypt, where a massive education deal that was delivered in 2022 is not expected to be repeated at the same scale,” says Fouad Charakla, IDC’s senior research manager for client devices in the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa.
“With a general slowdown in demand expected, PCD shipments into the majority of the region’s nations will experience year-over-year declines, including the key markets of South Africa, the UAE, Israel, and Turkey.”
“A few nations in the area, including Egypt, Pakistan, Nigeria, and Turkey, have seen recent depreciations of their domestic currencies relative to the dollar. This will have a negative effect on demand in the aforementioned countries and increase the cost of imports, including those of personal computing devices. Despite these obstacles, huge education deals are anticipated to be completed this year in Pakistan, Egypt, and Nigeria, as well as a sizable government deal.”
