Market Report, "Computers and Peripherals in China", published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Nov 03 2014

2014 was a year intermingling both challenges and opportunities for the computer industry in China. The continuous rapid development of mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones caused mounting threats to traditional computer products, especially the desktops, which saw retail volume sales decrease by 10% in 2014. In addition, the upgrading speed of computer products had begun to slow down, which resulted in the decelerating retail volume growth of laptops as well in 2014. However, the long-term shift of user habits that more consumers skipped personal computers to directly purchase mobile devices such as tablets brought new driving forces and wide development space to the computer industry in China.

Competitive Landscape

Lenovo (China) further consolidated its leading position in computers in 2013, accounting for a 30% total retail volume share, an increase of two percentage points on 2012. To cater to the diversified consumers’ preference, the company had a wide product portfolio in computers under a series of subbrands including IdeaPad, IdeaCentre and ThinkPad. The company also continued to focus on launching new products to catch up and even lead the market trends. For example, Lenovo launched the new Yoga tablet with Android 4.3 operating system in the first half of 2014. Furthermore, the company also strengthened its leading position through intensive cooperation with the leading distributors such as Suning.
