CCID: Q1-Q3 Desktop PC Sales Revenue Up 1.2%

PRNews, 1/12/09

Chinese market research firm CCID Consulting has released figures showing that in the first three quarters of 2008, sales of desktop PCs in China saw slow growth, with sales volume reaching 16.68 mln units, up 8.2% YoY, and total sales revenue of RMB 64.12 bln, up 1.2% YoY. Sales for Q4 are expected to reach 6 mln sets, up 6.3% YoY. The drop in desktop PC growth rates was caused by both an increase in demand for notebook PCs, and also the effects of the global financial crisis.

In 2009, the Chinese government's plan to promote consumer electronics in rural areas by providing a 13% subsidy on purchases of items such as PCs is expected to help stimulate demand in the market.
