Mac Sales Are Extremely Weak, but Market Share Continues to Rise - Analysts

According to the latest reports from well-known and reliable IDC and Gartner analysts, Apple’s Mac sales in the third quarter of this year demonstrate the weakest results in the course of the last two years. Still, PC sales fell by 7.7% (Gartner) or 10.8% (IDC), and the market share of Mac computers grew from 6.9% to either 7.6% (Gartner) or 7.5% (IDC). It is currently unclear how many Macs Apple actually shipped to customers in Q3 2015 as Gartner reports about 5.6 million units and IDC claims the number was equal to 5.3 million units.

Here’s how 9to5Mac reporters comment on the latest estimates:

Ahead of new retina 4K iMac and likley accessories launch next week, IDC estimated that Apple sold 5.3M Macs in Q3 2015, a year-on-year fall of 3.4%. Gartner instead estimated 5.6M sales, representing a 1.5% increase.

Apple is expected to reveal the number of Macs sold worldwide at a special meeting devoted to financial results in the third quarter of 2015. This meeting will reportedly take place on October 27th, so we still have some time to speculate about the Mac market share and its grows over the last year.
