IDC said that there had been a 7.6% annual growth in desktop shipments because of the “knock-on effects of companies returning to their respective offices.”
However, there had been a huge 29.5% YoY decline in notebook shipments due to the “weakened demand from market saturation and inflation effects on the average buyer.”
According to IDC, PCs priced in the USD600 (~Php33,400) and USD1,000 (~Php55,800) range are still a huge hit to Filipinos as they offer “optimal price-to-performance ratio”.

IDC noted that the final quarter can be challenging for vendors, especially during the holiday season. This is due to consumers shifting their spending priorities to other goods and services.
