The Asia Pacific personal computer (PC) market is expected to grow 20.3 per cent in 2010, reaching 114.6 million unit shipments, according to Gartner Inc, the world's leading information technology research and advisory company.

Spending on PCs in Asia Pacific was forecast to grow 12.4 per cent this year as against only 2.9 percent in 2009, due to a sharper decline in average selling prices for PCs in 2009, according to a release here today.

Mr Lillian Tay, Principal Research Analyst at Gartner, said “while overall growth in Asia Pacific was strong in 2009, at a country level India and the more mature markets with high PC penetration exhibited weak PC shipments. However, the improving worldwide economy should lead to better confidence to invest in 2010, especially in Taiwan, South Korea and Singapore. Similarly in India, PC buyers are now more confident to spend, with employment on the upswing.”
