The pandemic-induced lockdown has forced education, work, and entertainment to go online, causing significant growth in the PC market in India.

Basis the International Data Corporation’s (IDC) report 2021 Q3 traditional PC shipments has witnessed a rapid 30% (YoY) growth in Q32021, marking the fifth consecutive quarter of growth.
Gaming to take the lead
Over the past few years, gaming has seen tremendous growth across the world, and India has been no exception. The recently launched, HP India Gaming Landscape Report 2021 revealed key insights from the gaming sector that reflects on current trends and gives an insight into evolution of gaming for the years to come.

Further, basis the study over 90% respondents agree that the gaming industry is a viable career option. With the growth in the esports industry, we interpret the increased interest of gaming enthusiasts to pursue their passions, not just as a hobby, but as a more lucrative career option.
In 2022, we foresee accelerated growth in PC penetration amongst gaming enthusiasts. Laptops provide enhanced and immersive gaming experiences and are multi-functional in nature and that will drive growth for PC adoption amongst gamers. With more consumers exposed to PC, we will be looking at a PC as a more multifunctional device where the all-in-one device will help them power both work and play, including gaming, video editing, or content creation.
