Lenovo is now the world’s second largest PC maker

The company vows to continue investing in innovation that will help drive the convergence of technologies and services among its product lines.

Lenovo has now surpassed Dell to claim the number two position – its highest rank ever - in worldwide PC shipments, according to preliminary data released today by International Data Corporation (IDC), a leading global provider of market intelligence for the consumer technology market.

Following five quarters as the fastest-growing PC maker among the world’s top vendors, the preliminary IDC data reports Lenovo achieving record market share of approximately 13.7% and record quarterly shipment volume of approximately 12.6 million units, according to a Lenovo release.

The following statement is attributable to Lenovo CEO Yuanqing Yang: “Lenovo has captured incredible marketplace momentum to surpass two competitors to capture the #2 spot in worldwide PCs over the span of just two quarters. This is the highest rank Lenovo has achieved in worldwide PC sales and, given the current competitive environment, positions the company as a strong challenger to ultimately become the global market leader. We are growing in the enterprise and the consumer space – and our customers know we are fully committed to the PC market for the long term. At the same time, we will continue to invest in innovative products that will help drive the convergence of technologies and services across all four screens – smart phones, tablets, PCs and smart TV. We must deliver a great user experience across all platforms to achieve our goal and become the leading personal technology company in the world. I believe we have the products, the team, the strategy and the momentum to achieve this long-term aspiration.”
