PC gamers and screens: towards a complicated year 2023?
The year 2023 should not be that of screens and PC gamers, with deliveries expected to drop.
There are good years in the world of gaming, and others not so good. And the one we are experiencing should not go down in history as a great vintage in terms of deliveries of screens and PC gamers, according to this study by International Data Corporation (IDC).
A combination of several factors
The sale of gaming equipment should not be very good this year. This is what concludes the report of the global giant of consulting and studies in the information technology sectors. IDCwhich expects the gaming PC and monitor market to slow down in 2023. This trend will follow a contraction in the market last year, a first sinceIDC began observing this area in 2016.
And the reasons for the decline are manifold. With a drop in sales last year, inventories have piled up, automatically driving down orders for new generations of PCs and monitors. Moreover, the fairly unstable global economic environment does not encourage purchases at the level of recent years.
Back to normal by the end of the year
This drop can also be seen as the backlash of the great wave of purchases in 2020 and 2021, marked by confinements and a greater place taken by indoor activities. Many people having then equipped themselves with a new installation, the need for new equipment of the latest generation is much less felt today.
But this trend should be cyclical. According to the researcherIDC Jay Chou, in a few quarters, deliveries should return to normal. Before taking off again. Because the analysis firm sees deliveries of gaming products increase in the coming years from 58.8 million units in 2023 to 75.1 million in 2027.
