PC sales spiked not just because of the pandemic, but also because of the categories these PCs came from. During the pandemic years, the number of gaming laptops sold in the country went up by many times. This led to the segment of the PC market becoming an all-in-one solution for those who needed to study, work or play from a single device, resulting in a rise in the number of laptops sold during the pandemic years.
The number of gaming machines sold in India has gone up to about 8,00,000 in 2021, compared to just 40,000 units in 2016. In a podcast with indianexpress.com, Arnold Su revealed that the number of gaming machines sold in India has gone up to about 8,00,000 in 2021, compared to just 40,000 units in 2016. New gamers are not solely responsible for the increase.
Vertical markets for gaming laptops have also grown.
According to Su, gaming machines’ use cases are expanding as well as the number of gamers. The same can be said for gaming laptops, which have evolved to be more versatile than ever, catering to the needs of gamers who also work, study, create content, or simply binge on Netflix.
