Personal Computer Sale : Has the growing penetration of smartphones had a profound effect on the sale of personal computers?

Sales of personal computers (PC) in the Indian market declined by nearly 30 per cent year-on-year to 29.92 lakh units in the January-March quarter due to low demand. Market research firm International Data Corporation (IDC) released a report saying that 42.82 lakh PCs were sold in the same quarter a year ago.
IDC issues a quarterly report on personal computer equipment worldwide. Desktops, notebooks and workstations come under personal computers. According to the report released for the Indian market, the sales of personal computers in India decreased by 30.1 percent to 29.92 lakh units as compared to January-March 2022.
While desktop demand remained positive, notebook demand fell by 40.8 percent year-on-year. Apart from the consumer segment, the decrease in demand from the commercial segment was also responsible for this.
