PC industry just keeps on growing
Tom Foremski Strong demand in Europe and the US created a good year for the worldwide PC industry in 1998, says US market research firm Dataquest. The PC industry reported growth of 15 per cent last year with US and European PC markets representing 65 per cent of PC shipments. “Affordability and growing relevance of Internet content is sustaining double-digit PC growth in the US,” said Dataquest analyst Bill Schaub. “Dataquest’s latest survey suggests that as many as 37 per cent of US households are now connected to the Internet.” Compaq Computer again held the top vendor spot with almost 14 per cent market share followed by IBM, Dell Computer and Hewlett-Packard.
