Romanian PC market stays hot in 3Q07, says IDC
Nov 30, 2007
The Romanian PC market continued to grow rapidly in the third quarter of 2007 in terms of both shipments and value. According to the latest data from IDC, shipments soared by more than a third year on year to 193,541 units and the value of the market jumped by almost a half to reach nearly $165 million.
Notebook shipments continued to rise steeply in 3Q07, by 92% compared to the same period last year. Desktop PCs grew almost 17.5% year on year in shipments, while the x86 server market grew by a solid 21.3% over the same period of 2006.
"The Romanian PC market continued to thrive in the third quarter of 2007, in line with projected trends," said Calin Mirea, research analyst, IDC Romania. "Home user and SMB demand, accessible prices, increasingly powerful configurations, aggressive marketing, and a number of private and public sector projects have again synergized to create strong year-on-year growth. While local assemblers remain uncontested champions in the desktop space, international vendors continue to command the notebook market - a situation not likely to change soon. Overall, the market remains hot, as vendors prepare for an even stronger fourth quarter."
