Global Notebook PC Shipment Volume Estimated to Reach 220 Million Units in 2022 with Stronger Commercial and Gaming PC Demand: MIC
June 15, 2022

Taiwan's government-backed research institute MIC (Market Intelligence & Consulting Institute) announced on June 15 at 2022 MIC Spring Forum held online from June 15-27 that global notebook PC shipment volume will record approximately 220 million units in 2022, 178 million of which will be contributed by Taiwanese makers. The improved sales of notebook PCs due to the stay-at-home trend has been largely offset by the Russia-Ukraine war and lockdowns in China during 2022. Therefore, global notebook PC shipment volume is estimated to decline by 10.3% year-on-year in 2022. "Global economic deflation and recession fears have also led to the falling consumer confidence levels and further dampened growth in the notebook PC market this year," said Edward Lin, industry consultant with MIC.

Lin also pointed out that the product mix of Taiwanese makers has played a key role in affecting their global share in 2022. Those who have an upper hand on the market are those who place more focus on commercial and gaming PCs.

Established in 1987, MIC (Market Intelligence & Consulting Institute) is a major government think tank, one of the leading IT research institutes and a division of III (Institute for Information Industry) in Taiwan.
