Global shipments of personal computing devices (PCD) are expected to decline slightly through 2021, at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -1.7 percent, according to the latest forecast from International Data Corp. That market segment includes both traditional PCs (desktops, notebooks and workstations) and tablets (slates and detachables). While the category will decline overall, some devices will experience more growth than others. Detachable tablets and convertible notebooks will see the biggest increase, with a five-year CAGR of more than 14 percent, while ultraslim notebooks are expected to grow 11.8 percent over the same period. Notebook PCs will see just 0.7 percent growth, the IDC forecast predicted.
