PC shipments fell 13% year-on-year to 13.09 million units in the third quarter of 2022 in mainland China, according to data released by technology market analysis firm Canalys. Despite the overall slump, Chinese telecom giant Huawei saw yearly growth of 109%, accounting for 7.8% of the PC market in mainland China during the period. Lenovo still topped the market with a 38% share, shipping 5 million units in the third quarter, a 17% decrease from the same period last year. “The PC market is unlikely to see growth in Q4 2022 or early 2023, given China’s current fragile macroeconomic situation,” said Canalys Analyst Emma Xu. The tablet market in mainland China performed more positively but still saw a 3% yearly decrease in the third quarter of 2022. Honor delivered the highest growth rate in the sector with a 42% improvement from the same period in 2021, as Xiaomi and market leader Apple followed with 15% and 7% year-on-year increases in tablet shipments, respectively. Huawei and Lenovo both saw drops in tablet shipments in mainland China of more than 25% compared with the third quarter of 2021. [Canalys]
