IDC expects the market to recover over the remainder of the year with 5.6 million units forecast to be shipped in 2013, representing 7% year-over-year growth for the year. By 2017, these devices are expected to reach 9.2 million units shipped worldwide, according to IDC.

 

"With increasing adoption of cloud and virtualization, growth is expected in all form factors, including mobile and with liquid crystal display (LCD), although standalone will still dominate," said Jennifer Song, Research Analyst, Worldwide Trackers. "The United States will continue to capture the majority of the market and is expected to grow, but the strongest growth will be in China. These two major markets will lead the shift towards virtualization in the commercial segment," she added.


"The worldwide enterprise client device market is highly concentrated, with the top five firms capturing more than 74% of the total market," said Rajani Singh, Research Analyst, Personal Computing at IDC.
