The following is the In 2020, chromebook will sell more than MAC in the world recommended by recordtrend.com. And this article belongs to the classification: BYOD, MacBook, PC, Hardware equipment industry.
According to the latest data, 2020 is the first year for chromebooks to surpass Mac’s in sales and gain considerable market share growth. Previously, Google’s Chrome operating system driven computers sold more than Apple’s in each quarter, but in 2020, for the first time, chrome won the second place in the annual share of operating system. Microsoft’s windows still maintains most of the market share, but because chrome operating system and MacOS have gained market share, windows has also suffered a great impact.
This milestone is based on the number provided by IDC, which usually does not divide sales by device operating system. But when we looked for the possible impact of COVID-19 on the PC market, IDC analyst Mike Shirer confirmed the discovery to GeekWire. We also contacted Gartner, but the company did not include chromebook in its traditional PC market statistics.
This is a big victory for Google and a warning to apple and Microsoft. It also signals to app and game developers that Chrome OS can no longer be ignored. Frankly speaking, any enterprise providing products or services through the Internet should reserve resources to ensure that the experience of Chrome OS is comparable to that of windows and MacOS.
In the first quarter of 2020, apple and Google are on a par. Windows accounted for 87.5% of the market share, MacOS accounted for 5.8%, Chrome OS accounted for 5.3%. But in the second quarter of 2020, windows dropped to 81.7%, MacOS grew to 7.6%, and Chrome OS jumped to 10.0%.
The third and fourth quarters of 2020 confirm this trend. Windows further dropped to 78.9% in Q3 and then to 76.7% in Q4; MAC OS grew to 8.4% in Q3 and then fell to 7.7% in Q4, while Chrome OS had 11.5% share in Q3 and 14.4% share in Q4. As the fourth quarter is often the quarter with the largest PC shipment volume, the performance of Q4 is particularly significant. Although MacOS expanded its lead over Chrome OS in the fourth quarter of 2019, Chrome OS hit back in the fourth quarter of 2020.
The following is a breakdown of the year-on-year data (IDC’s data includes desktops, laptops and workstations):
Windows: down 4.9 percentage points, from 85.4% in 2019 to 80.5% in 2020.
Chrome operating system. 4 percentage points, from 6.4% in 2019 to 10.8% in 2020.
MacOS: up 0.8 percentage points, from 6.7% in 2019 to 7.5% in 2020.
