HP and LG Electronics See Solid Year-Over-Year Growth in Worldwide PC Monitor Market in Second Quarter of 2016, According to IDC

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 22, 2016 — The total worldwide PC monitor market shipped more than 30 million units in the second quarter of 2016 (2Q16), up 4.9% year over year and 4.6% quarter over quarter, according to the International Data Corporation ( IDC) Worldwide Quarterly PC Monitor Tracker.

"The second quarter proved better than forecast overall, with the U.S., EMEA, and Canada markets recording solid year-over-year results. However, IDC expects the global monitor market will continue to decline at rates around 3% year over year from 2018 through 2020," said Maura Fitzgerald, senior research analyst, Worldwide Trackers.

IDC currently forecasts 118 million PC monitor units will be shipped for the full year 2016 and expects to see a year-over-year decline of 12.7% in worldwide shipments to 26.7 million units in the second quarter of 2017. By 2020, worldwide shipments are expected to be less than 100 million units as the adoption of mobile devices at lower price points is expected to continue.
