PC sales in India cross 3.6 million units

MAIT has announced the findings of its Industry Performance Review for the financial year 2004-05. The survey, conducted jointly with IMRB, reported that the desktop PC market grossed sales of 3.63 million units, registering a growth of 20 percent over the last fiscal.

The growth in PC sales can be attributed to a significant consumption by industry verticals such as telecom, banking & financial services, manufacturing, retail and BPO. Other factors that led to the growth in sales were the major e-governance initiatives of the central and state governments, and the drop in prices, especially at the entry-level, which saw the emergence of a strong household market.

Consumption of PCs with alternative processors grew by 20 percent in absolute terms.

Overall printer sales grew by 12 percent over that in FY 2003-04, while the UPS market grew by 48 percent over 2003-04.
