B2B sales up 12.5% and consumer sales up 25% year-on-year

UK PC sales rise in Q3

Volume sales of PCs have increased within the UK, including a rise in desktops, notebooks, netbooks and workstations.

According to Context, during the first 11 weeks of Q3 2014, the UK saw an increase in PC sales by 14.3 per cent year-on-year, while Germany grew by 18.2 per cent and France by 17.3 per cent.

Context said that PC sales rose thanks to low priced notebooks and and the fact that consumers are holding on to their tablets for longer. 

This means that consumer PC sales rose 25 per cent year-on-year, while B2B sales rose by 12.5 per cent in Q3 2014.

Marie-Christine Pygott, senior analyst at Context, said: “Growth in early Q3 2014 was 12.5 per cent for business-targeted PCs as XP migration orders and the need for refreshes continued to drive demand in the segment.”

Various countries across Western European distribution also registered a growth in PC sales, including Italy, where sales grew by 28.9 per cent and Spain by 30.2 per cent, respectively.

Sweden also witnessed a year-on-year growth of 7.3 per cent, while Denmark grew by 13 per cent.
