The market research firm stated that HP retained its top spot with a market share of 25.5 per cent in the India PC market. Vendor market share declined by 8.2 per cent QoQ over 2Q14. The drop in share was primarily on account of fewer shipments fulfilled towards the special project i.e. ELCOT in Q3. On the consumer business, HP pre-empted demand and rolled out early campaigns and partner programs that led to their growth. This was further fuelled by their success on entry level segment well supported through Bing SKUs.

Dell maintained the 2nd spot in the India PC market. The vendor did witness strong demand by virtue of its channel expansion and improved partner engagement measures that continues to drive their business in CY 2014. Also, introduction of additional products on AMD platform provided further traction to their overall consumer business.

Lenovo took the third spot with 16.5 per cent market share in the quarter. They've recorded substantial growth in their consumer notebook business. Enterprise business within commercial segment continues to be their forte and recent changes in the overall demand situation should augur well for them in the subsequent quarters.
