Digitimes Research: Global all-in-one PC shipments to drop 3.9% on year in 2015
Betty Shyu, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Monday 30 November 2015]

With consumer demand for all-in-one PCs remaining weak, and Apple's new high-end iMacs and the price cut for previous-generation models failing to drive sales, Digitimes Research expects all-in-one PC shipments to decline 3.9% on year in 2015 and reach around 13 million units.

Since the market is unlikely to see any effective expansion, shipments in 2016 are expected to stay flat from 2015 or drop slightly by 0.5% on year.

However, all-in-one PCs will see a much smaller on-year shipment drop than that of desktops in 2015 and therefore all-in-one PCs will account for 10.5% of worldwide desktop shipments in 2015, a new historical record, according to Digitimes Research's latest report about all-in-one PCs.

Among brand vendors, Lenovo was the largest in 2014 in terms of shipments, surpassing Apple by only a small volume, and is expected to remain at the top in 2015 and 2016. The top-2 vendors' combined market share will rise from 59.1% in 2014 to 60% in 2015.

Hewlett-Packard (HP), Dell and Acer will remain the top-3 to top-5 brand vendors in 2015. HP will have a shipment gap with Dell of around 1.4 million units. The top-5 all-in-one PC brand vendors' combined market share will be 88.8% in 2015 and 89.1% in 2016, giving only limited space for non-top-5 players to survive.

As for all-in-one PC ODMs, top-5 makers Quanta Computer, TPV-Inventa, Wistron, Pegatron Technology and Compal Electronics will together supply 90.1% of global all-in-one PC shipments in 2015. Among the top-5 players, only TPV-Inventa and Compal will see shipment growth from 2014 in 2015 mainly thanks to orders from Lenovo. TPV-Inventa is expected to continue achieving growth in 2016.
