China is poised to experience robust growth in the shipment of AI-equipped personal computers (PCs) in the coming years

Industry experts anticipate a surge in the adoption of AI-powered PCs, driven primarily by the rapid advancement of large language models (LLMs) and the swift integration of generative AI technology into hardware devices.

These AI PCs, which embed AI into their processors, herald a significant shift in the PC landscape and are expected to initiate a new cycle of product replacement. According to a report by the International Data Corporation (IDC), China’s PC market is projected to sustain steady growth over the next five years, with AI-powered PCs anticipated to capture 85 percent of the market share by 2027.

IDC data indicates a substantial global uptick in AI PC shipments, with numbers forecasted to climb from approximately 50 million units in the present year to over 167 million by 2027. By the end of 2027, AI PCs are projected to constitute nearly 60 percent of all PC shipments worldwide.
