According to the market research company, the Redmond giant had a 3.3% market share in the U.S. in Q4 2018 with 472K PC shipments, down 12.9% year-over-year.
The global PC market returned to its familiar downward slope in the fourth quarter, according to preliminary numbers from market analysts. The demand existed, the market research firm says, only that the said shortage "affected vendors' ability to fulfill demand created by business PC upgrades".
PC makers shipped 68.6 million personal computers in the final quarter of 2018, a decline of 4.3 percent compared with the same period a year earlier, market researcher Gartner reported Thursday.

In brief: Research firms Gartner and IDC have released figures showing the state of PC sales last year-and it's not good news.

Globally, ASUS, Apple, and Acer suffered the greatest declines, as the table below shows, but the only two vendors to manage year-on-year growth were Dell and Lenovo (the latter knocked HP Inc off the number-one spot in Q4 2018). Dell, in contrast, had the strongest year-over-year growth among the top five OEMs with a 1.6 percent increase in quarterly shipments. "Holiday sales are no longer a major factor driving consumer demand for PCs". "The market stabilization in 2018 was attributed to consistent business PC growth, driven by Windows 10 upgrade".
In the US, HP was the top vendor for 4Q18, taking 33.4% market share.
