A report showed that the Indian traditional PC market fell by 11.7 percent year-over-year (YoY), with shipments of 3.9 million units in the September quarter.
According to new data from the International Data Corporation (IDC), all segments declined except the government, which grew by 91.5 percent YoY as government orders materialized, leading to solid growth for the third consecutive quarter.
