Downward PC Sales Spiral to Slow

The years-long PC sales slide will slow somewhat this year, Gartner has predicted. “After declining 9.5 percent in 2013, the global PC market is on pace to contract only 2.9 percent in 2014,” Gartner research director Ranjit Atwal said. The company lumps in desktops, notebooks and premium ultramobiles under the “PC” category. However, the skyrocketing demand for tablets will slow, Gartner forecast. Shipments will grow only by 24 percent over 2013, to total 256 million units. Mobile phone sales are expected to grow 3.1 percent over 2013.
