Notable Market Trends: ‘Supply Chain Was Stretched To Its Limits’

Jitesh Ubrani, research manager for IDC‘s Mobile Device Trackers, said every segment of the supply chain was stretched to its limits as production “once again lagged behind demand” during the final quarter of 2020.

“Not only were PC makers and ODMs dealing with component and production capacity shortages, but logistics remained an issue as vendors were forced to resort to air freight, upping costs at the expense of reducing delivery times,” said IDC’s Ubrani in a statement.

Another key data point is that IDC released total 2020 PC global shipments data, which saw its greatest growth in a decade.

The total number of PCs shipped worldwide in 2020 reached 302.6 million representing a 13.1 percent increase compared to 2019. The PC market hasn’t witnessed such a high annual growth rate since 2010, when the market was up 13.7 percent year over year, according to IDC.
