NEW DELHI: Personal computer sales in the country registered a growth of 32 per cent during 2003 at 2.3 million units as a result of sharp fall in computer prices that led to increased sales in small and medium enterprise sector, home and in non-metro cities.

"The average unit price of the PC has come down to just Rs 38,390 from Rs 51,580 in 1997," according to an IT market analysis report by consulting firm Skoch Consultancy Services.

According to the Skoch forecast, there will be a 50 per cent growth in the PC unit shipment in 2004 and about 1.2 additional PCs would be sold during the current calendar year with a total volume of 3.5 million units.

The major gainers were HCL and Zenith as "they together expanded their sliver in the PC market by three per cent. Likewise, primarily because of introduction of sub-$1000 notebooks, the segment sales registered an unprecedented 78 per cent growth to sell 87,499 units."
