PC Growth Projected, Just Not as Much

As the U.S. braces for a possible economic slowdown, Stamford, Conn.-based research firm Gartner (NYSE: IT) cut its growth outlook for PC sales from the previous year.

The research firm is now predicting 10.9 percent growth for PC sales in 2008, a mark that's down from the 2007 growth mark of 13.4 percent.

Gartner said it expects to see momentum in the notebook market propel strong sales for PCs worldwide. "We have been continuously surprised by the strength of mobile PCs, particularly in emerging markets," George Shiffler, research director at Gartner, told InternetNews.com.

According to the report, improved design was a major factor in the increase in PC shipments.

Gartner traced 60 percent of the worldwide PC growth to emerging markets such as Asia, China, India, Latin America and Brazil.

"Emerging markets in general have done very well, provided they remain uncoupled by what's happening in the U.S.," he said.
