    What this means: IDC’s latest Worldwide Quarterly Personal Computing Device Tracker, which gathers data in more than 90 countries, indicates that even as demand slows in 2022, the PC market is expected to see a five-year growth rate (CAGR) of 3.3% in the long run, mostly driven by laptop sales, per The Register.

    Desktops, laptops, and tablets accounted for almost an hour more of daily media time than mobile phones. In H1 2021, 94.6% of internet users owned a smartphone—a share essentially unchanged since H1 2019. By contrast, PC and tablet penetration both appear to have peaked. The share of respondents who owned a desktop or laptop slipped by more than 4 percentage points year over year, to 78.6%.

    Time spent with desktops, laptops, and tablets averaged 4 hours, 2 minutes (4:02) daily in H1 2021. This metric rose more steeply year over year than mobile time, which accounted for 3:08 daily. Digital video arguably now exceeds live TV in terms of reach, while paid-for video services made a quantum leap between 2020 and 2021.

    Some gender-related differences also persisted: Males were more likely than females to own a desktop or laptop, but the opposite was true for tablets. Traditional media are increasingly eclipsed by digital alternatives, though live TV still enjoys substantial reach.

    Smartphone ownership was predictably high, but penetration of desktops, laptops, and tablets was also greater than in most countries polled. Just under 95% of internet users ages 16 to 64 owned a smartphone in H1 2021—a marginal decline from 2020. The share who owned a feature phone also slipped, to 4.0%—though ownership remained higher (6.1%) among respondents ages 55 to 64.

    As in previous years, females were marginally more likely than males to own a tablet or smartphone; ownership of desktops and laptops was roughly equal in both groups. In addition, PC penetration was notably low among those ages 16 to 34 and in lower-income households. Larger screens still claimed a longer period of time each day.

    As in numerous other countries, the share of internet users who owned a desktop or laptop declined for the second year in a row, from 76.6% to 71.6% in H1 2021. Predictably, older respondents were most likely to own a PC; 77.0% of 55- to 64-year-olds had a desktop or laptop, for example, but that share had also dropped by more than 5 percentage points year over year (YoY).

    This year, however, time spent each day with desktops, laptops, and tablets rose by 25 minutes, while mobile time increased by 16 minutes—an indication that larger screens saw an uptick during phases of the pandemic when internet users were at home more often.

    Penetration of desktops, laptops, and tablets declined. Between H1 2020 and H1 2021, penetration of desktops, laptops, and tablets fell in virtually every market. Admittedly, several countries in Asia-Pacific—including China, Japan, and Thailand—saw modest gains for both devices. PC ownership also rose in India, UAE, and Vietnam.

Both mobile and PC time rose year over year (YoY); PCs recorded the larger gain, though.

    Some 73.0% of respondents in Malaysia also owned a desktop and/or laptop. Tablet penetration seems to have plateaued at just under one-third of respondents, though that share was more than 40% in the oldest age bracket, and close to 46% among affluent internet users. The proportion of respondents who still own a feature phone has continued to slide and is now below 10% in all cohorts.

All cohorts were deeply engaged with social media.

    Desktops, laptops, and tablets claimed 50 minutes more, at 4:17 daily. Time with mobile and nonmobile devices had risen since H1 2020.

    Ownership of desktops and laptops trended in the opposite direction, falling below 70% for the first time. Tablet penetration had also fallen, from 45.9% to 42.7%. Ownership was highest (59.8%) among affluent respondents and those ages 35 to 44 (51.9%). No other cohort posted penetration above 50%. As PC and tablet penetration shrank, the average time spent with those devices declined as well.

    As of H1 2021, 73.8% of internet users owned a desktop or laptop, while 33.5% owned a tablet. Ownership of both devices had slipped from the year prior.
