The personal computing market saw shipments continue to cool in the third quarter as demand waned and supply chain issues persisted, according to the data from the International Data Corporation released Monday.
Compared with this time last year, shipments were down 15%, which is still well above pre-pandemic levels, IDC found. Global shipments totaled 74.3 million in the quarter, down from 87.3 million during the same period last year.
Investors will likely be watching for signs of weakness in PC shipments when Microsoft and Intel report third quarter earnings later this month. Microsoft is set to release results on Oct. 25, while Intel will report on Oct. 27.
