Bangalore: The notebook PC market in India is picking up at a fast pace, after seven months of miserable sales. The industry is optimistic on notebook sales growing 20-25 percent during May-July.

The Indian notebook market grew by three percent during January-March 2009 quarter as compared to the October-December 2008 period, as per the IDC a market research firm.

As reported by Economic Times, the country's leading PC vendors like Hewlett-Packard (HP), Dell, Lenovo and Acer claim that the market is gradually growing with month-on-month sales moving up from May onwards. They also claim that the overall consumers' sentiments are improving with a bulk of demand coming from the education unit due to the admission season.

"The education sector is driving demand in the market. Moreover, a lot of consumers who were waiting in the wings for the general elections to get over are now going ahead with purchase decisions. We feel notebook sales will grow by 20 percent in April-June and thereafter by 10 percent," said, Rajiev Grover, Director of HP (India). It has launched six new notebook models.

Acer, a Taiwanese PC vendor has also expanded its notebook portfolio in India by bringing 20 new models recently.
