[photopress:it_PC_Camera.jpg,full,alignright]In 2007, China’s sales of personal computers or PCs, reached 27.94 million units, valued at RMB147.16 billion. Laptop sales volume reached 6.30 million units, up 49.5% year on year with a sales value of RMB50.01 billion. Desktop sales volume stood at 21.05 million units, up 12.9% year on year and its sales value was RMB86.07 billion, up 3.4% year on year.
These increases in sales have brought, in their wake, the development of peripheral industry.
In the first quarter of 2006, sales volume of computer peripherals stood at 50.09 million units, up 41.3% year on year. In 2007, sales value of computer peripherals in China increased by 14.9% year on year.
Foreign brands hare taken the leading places in computer peripherals market segment.
In 2007, HP laser printer took up more than 60% of the market shares. Epson stylus printer took up 69% of the market shares. Domestic brands were competitive in the middle- and low-end market.
However, possibly the large majority of peripherals, no matter what the brand, were made in China.
The report is based on the authoritative data from the National Statistics Bureau, the Ministry of Information Industry and China Electronic Sounds Industry Association and information from Analysys International, CCID Consulting, IDC, Gartner, ZDC and some computer peripherals producers. So you can take it that it is fairly solid.
