PC maker Lenovo is looking to increase its India revenues by around 16-20 percent in the current fiscal, which will be double the industry’s growth rate, a top company official said.
Traditional PC shipments in India dropped 8.3 percent to 2.15 million units in the January-March 2019 period, according to market research firm IDC.
“Market is looking very stable in 2019-20. IDC is projecting it to be flat. My view is that in revenue it will grow maybe 8-10 percent and in volumes it will be 3-4 percent. We will grow every business in double digits in terms of revenue and volume both… at least double the market growth,” Lenovo India Managing Director and CEO Rahul Agarwal said.
According to IDC, Lenovo had the third highest market share of 25.2 percent in overall personal computer segment in the first quarter. It missed the second spot to Dell by a narrow margin. HP led the market with 28.1 percent share.
Lenovo India has 21-22 percent share in the enterprise segment and 19-20 percent each in the consumer and small and medium business (SMB) segments, Agarwal said.
Lenovo counts tablet business as a separate category in which it commands an estimated 33 percent market share.
Lenovo’s share in commercial PC segment increased during the first quarter of 2019 on account of a contract it bagged from ELCOT (Electronics Corporation of Tamil Nadu).―Millenium Post
