A Wild Clash in Q2 2022 Apple Mac Shipment Statistics between IDC and Gartner is Baffling

1 xf cover Macs  statistics report  Q2 2022


Patently Apple has posted 594 reports on various Apple statistics over the years and never have I seen a clash between IDC and Gartner on the same topic of Global Mac Shipments before.


Earlier today we covered IDC’s Q2 2022 PC Shipments wherein Apple’s Mac shipments crashed by 22.5%. In stark contrast, Gartner is claiming that that Apple Mac shipments grew 9.3%, higher than the other top 5 PC Vendors. One of the U.S. Research companies is out to lunch, but which?

2 Gartner Q2 2022 PC stats


While IDC saw the Global PC sector decline 15.3%, Gartner claims the decline was 12.6%. 


The top three vendors in the worldwide PC market experienced declines in PC shipments in the second quarter of 2022, but their ranking remained unchanged. The combination of HP declining 27.5% and Dell declining 5.2% allowed Dell to move to within 0.3 percentage points of HP in market share. Apple was the only vendor to experience growth in the second quarter of 2022, driven by the popularity of the M1 device. 


Regional Overview


According to Gartner, the U.S. PC market declined 17.5% in the second quarter of 2022. Although the market experienced shipment growth in both desktop PCs and laptops (excluding Chromebooks), this growth was offset by a 50% year-over-year decline in Chromebook shipments. 


Dell secured the top spot in the U.S. PC market based on shipments with 27.2% market share. Despite a decline of 43.5%, HP took the No. 2 position with 22.3% market share. Apple landed in fourth spot with 19.5% growth.

We may have to review a third report on PC shipments for Q2 2022 to get a better feel for which of the two reports, IDC or Gartner, were more accurate. For now, the stark contrast between the reports is nothing shy of baffling and possibly damaging to the reputation of one of these research leaders.
