So what can we say about the global notebook shipments in the second quarter of 2019? The North American market is still the most active. Over 30% of all notebooks shipped worldwide were in this market. Interestingly, Xiaomi, Huawei, Honor, and other brands from this echelon are not on the list. This means all the aforementioned brands are popular only the domestic market, China.
Apart from this, HP still ranks first and it’s not going to yield its position. Though Lenovo is already breathing on HP’s neck, the gap is still obvious. If nothing accidental happens, HP will remain in the top position in the second half of 2019 as well.
