Gaming monitor sales rocket

by Stuart Wilson, Friday 22 September 2017

The fast-growing billion-dollar global e-sports economy drove worldwide gaming monitor sales up 175% year-on-year for the second quarter of 2017, according to the latest figures from CONTEXT, the global IT market analysis company. The rapid growth of gaming monitors was not quite enough to offset an overall 3% year-on-year decline in worldwide monitor shipments, driven by lower sales in China.

Sales performance across the world varied considerably by region, reports CONTEXT. Desktop monitor shipments to EMEA grew by 5%, driven by Central & Eastern Europe, which saw 12% growth. North America and Japan saw shipments up 2% and 4% respectively. Shipments to the rest of the world, 52% of the total, declined, with the biggest market, China, decreasing by 11% year-on-year.

“Despite the overall negative trend, there are significant opportunities for growth,” said Dominika Koncewicz,
senior analyst for displays at CONTEXT. "These are due to factors such as a shift to larger, more expensive screens, the rising sales of curved monitors, higher resolution displays, and the growing demand for wider 21:9 monitors as well as the demand for gaming monitors."

Full-HD monitors remain the dominant resolution accounting for two-thirds of global shipments. Dell retained its position as the top vendor in the second quarter of 2017 with a 19% share of the total market in unit terms, while HP and Lenovo followed with shares of 14% and 10% respectively.
