Apple: Macs have scored points in 2021, and it should continue to 2022

“2021 was a landmark year in the history of the PC market because it cemented the place of PCs in work, education and play. The fact that the market can thus post double-digit growth after an already exceptional 2020 year says a lot about the extent of the request within 17 last months”, explains Canalys.

And to add: “over the long term, the most important developments in 2021 are increasing computer penetration and recourse since the start of the pandemic, an unprecedented proportion of PC sales represented not renewals but new machines expanding the fleet”.

20300 should be according to Canalys “the year of digital acceleration”, while noting that customers are ready to spend more to acquire more premium machines that provide more comfort in telework. “If 2021 was the year of the digital transition, 2022 will be the year of digital acceleration. Technology demand has exploded over the past two years, the effects of which will continue to be felt and will continue to disrupt the supply chain”, notes the analyst.

And to add: “This pressure on demand does not only have an impact on the availability of PCs, but also on smartphones, cars and servers. As PC vendors navigate murky waters, consumer spending is changing. Above all, growth should be seen in the segment of premium PCs, monitors and accessories and other technological products that facilitate teleworking, remote collaboration and increased productivity”.

With their unrivaled battery life and astounding performance, the last Macs with an Apple Silicon chip were indeed the better placed to take advantage of the global situation.
