Apple’s Mac sales surge 40% worldwide to grab significant market share as PC shipments swoon

Apple’s Mac sales increased 40.2% year-over-year in the third quarter of 2022 as all major PC manufacturers shipments plummeted. As a result, the indomitable Mac’s worldwide market share increased from 8.2% to a whopping 13.5% year-over-year for the Q322, according to the latest data from International Data Corporation (IDC).

Declines continued for the traditional PC market as global shipments totaled 74.3 million units in the third quarter of 2022 (3Q22), according to preliminary results from the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Personal Computing Device Tracker. Cooling demand and uneven supply contributed to a 15.0% year-over-year contraction. However, shipping volumes remain well above pre-pandemic levels as PC volumes have been largely driven by commercial upgrades due to the impending end of support for Windows 7.

“In addition to shipping volumes, we will be keeping an eye on the trends in Average Sales Prices (ASPs) this quarter,” added Linn Huang, vice president of research, Devices and Displays at IDC. “Shortages in recent years have aggressively pushed changes in the product mix towards the premium end. This, coupled with rising component and logistics costs, drove ASPs up for five consecutive quarters to $ 910 in 1Q22, the highest since 2004. However, as demand slows, promotions are in full swing and order cutting, ASP growth was reversed in 2Q22. Another quarter of the decline in ASP indicates a retreating market. “
