Market research firm IDC has said worldwide shipments of personal computers dropped 9.8% in 2013, the worst contraction on record, and are likely to decline by 6.1% this year due to lacklustre demand in developing countries, Reuters has reported. IDC had expected PC shipments to drop 10.1% last year, but it said that the fourth quarter benefited from a slight boost as old computers running Microsoft’s XP operating system, which the software company is due to stop supporting in April, were replaced. Long-term growth in PC shipments is expected to remain just below zero, with shipments in 2018 expected to decline 0.2%, IDC said.
