This year?s shipments are the lowest in the last two years, according to Gartner, as the PC shipments totaled 68.4 million units in the second quarter of 2015, being 9.5% lower than 2014?s second quarter results.

According to analysts, the current PC shipments situation is caused by the current technology stagnation, caused probably by the impending major changes that will arrive at the end of 2015. As the new Intel Skylake is anxiously awaited across the world to make its appearance in August, old chipsets and CPU will simply not sell in the same numbers as they did the previous years.

The same analysts confirm this trend, expecting for PC shipments to grow back slowly as 2016 unfolds. However, other analysts at Gartner cited by DigiTimes consider that it has to do with the price spike of PC components due to sharp appreciation of the US dollar compared to the local industry. Also with the end of the Windows XP support, China had to invest in buying newer Windows licenses, also growing the number of new PCs bought.
