Lenovo reclaims top spot in global market share of traditional PCs while Apple sales drop sharply in the third quarter of this year, according to a report by global market research firm International Data Corporation.

Chinese computer giant Lenovo, with 24 percent global market share, replaced United States-based computer firm HP, which has 22.8 percent global market share of traditional PCs, including desktop, notebook and workstation, in Q3.

Dell Inc, Acer Group and Apple took the third to fourth places on the list of top companies in global traditional PC shipment, market share and year-on-year growth in Q3, with 17 percent, 7.2 percent and 7.1 percent global market shares, respectively.

Apple witnessed over 11 percent decline year-on-year in the third quarter and became the only top 5 company to underperform the overall market, IDC said.

Gartner, another world-renowned consulting firm, echoed IDC’s report by saying that
Lenovo secured the top spot in the worldwide PC market with growth of 10.7 percent in shipments.

The shipments of Lenovo PCs are estimated to reach 15,889 million with a global market share of 23.6 percent in Q3, followed by HP Inc and Dell with 21.8 percent and 16 percent market shares, respectively.

Apple grabbed the fourth position on the list of preliminary worldwide PC vendor unit estimates for Q3 of this year, according to Gartner, but still recorded 8.5 percent year-on-year decrease.
