EMEA Gaming PC Market Shrinking but Optimistic Forecast


International Data Corporation (IDC) analyzed the gaming personal computer market in the EMEA region (Europe, including Russia, the Middle East and Africa) in the first quarter of this year. The published data takes into account the supply of desktop systems and laptops.

It is said that between January and March inclusive, shipments in the specified region decreased by 2.7% year on year – to 1.6 million units. Significant growth is expected in the current quarter – by 10.6% compared to the second quarter of 2019. However, weak sales in the second half of the year will lead to the fact that the market at the end of 2020 will show a fall at 2.4%.

In Western Europe, shipments of gaming computers last quarter fell 10.2% year on year. In the CEMA region (Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Africa), shipments, by contrast, increased by 10.2%, reaching 0.67 million units.

The forecast for the coming years is optimistic. Until 2024, the gaming computer market in the EMEA region is expected to show an average annual growth rate in compound interest (CAGR) of 4.1%. As a result, almost 8.1 million units were delivered in 2024. Moreover, two-thirds in this volume (66.7%) will be gaming laptops.
