The growth period for the Chromebook segment seems to be over. In any case, a source, usually based on industry data, claims that the supply of systems in this category is declining. ODM vendors predict that Chromebook shipments will drop 50% between July and August.
Earlier, analysts at IDC predicted that 43.4 million Chromebooks would be shipped this year. This is 33.5% more than in 2020. However, already in 2022, growth will give way to a decline, which, according to IDC experts, will be protracted. It will worsen in 2023, with a return to growth expected only in 2025.
Chromebook shipments are up 74% in 2020.
