The combined desk-based and mobile PC market in India totalled nearly 2.5 million units in the fourth quarter of 2011, a 6.5 per cent decrease from the fourth quarter of 2010, according to Gartner, Inc.

“The hard-disk drive (HDD) shortage due to the floods in Thailand significantly impacted the desktop market which declined 18 percent year-on-year in the fourth quarter of 2011,” said Vishal Tripathi, principal research analyst at Gartner. “White boxes (including parallel import), which accounted for 45 percent of the overall desktop market, registered a 32 percent decline in the quarter compared to Q4 2010. Mobile PCs, with a 12 percent increase from the fourth quarter of 2010, were able to stop a further decline of the PC market.
