The PC market in Latin America grew by 15.2 percent during the third quarter of 2017, after more than two years of decreases, to 4.9 million units, according to the IDC consultancy. One of the main reasons for this performances was the elimination of import taxes in Argentina. The country saw a growth of 85 percent in desktop units, compared with the same quarter of 2016.

Due to an improvement of the economic situation, Brazil achieved an annual growth of 30 percent. The Ultrabook and Notebook segments saw growth rates of 33 percent and 26 percent, respectively, in units. IDC expects the market to reach 2.5 percent growth at the end of the year, with 17.1 million units throughout Latin America. For 2018, the estimate is of a drop of 9 percent due to electoral processes in several countries of the region. The consumer segment showed double-digit growth of 11.5 percent year-on-year.
