    Re: JPR forecasts dramatic growth in PC hardware inventory and sales

    The issue is that many people have pushed purchases forward due to the pandemic. No doubt there will be additional sales,because of all the gamers who missed out due to miners,etc. However,as most people keep their parts for years,I am uncertain whether we can look at 2020 and 2021 sales,and be certain it will be extended to 2025. This is also in light of hopefully a better Coronavirus situation,ie,more people can now travel without being stuck at home. Many might want to spend their free cash on travelling more,to make up for this.

    Are you saying JPR is telling manufacturers to count their chickens before they've hatched!

    On the other hand if reports like this lead to PC Hardware being made in excess of actual demand, prices can only come down! Which would be good for us hardware enthusiasts but eventual bad for the landfill.

    Shock windows 11 creates a lot of e-waste only supporting 3-4 year old equipment & they predict an uptick in sales,lol must get my crystal ball polished.

    The issue is they are basing their future models on an exceptional period,where you had both mining and lots of people stuck indoors worldwide,bringing purchases forward,especially since all the money they normally would have spent,wasn't being spent. Also those who saved a lot of money from not needing to commute anymore. So people had more a want and means(especially with Furlough) to perhaps justify these extra expenditures(IIRC,I read about people spending it on consoles and PCs).

    But going forward,I suspect there are enough people(me included) who really do want to go out more and do stuff,especially once we can get things under control. Plus the other issue,is whether all jobs under Furlough will be still there over the next 6 months or so(and there are concerns about inflation,as opposed to profit margin induced inflation),and you are starting to see companies lie Barclaycard clamp down on credit due to their own concerns. There is talk of a K shaped economic recovery.

    Re: JPR forecasts dramatic growth in PC hardware inventory and sales

    Unless there's some text in the full report that we can't see, I don't see how JPR are forecasting dramatic growth, instead it looks like there's some left-over growth 21-22 (but not as much as the growth 20-21) and then it doesn't grow any further.

    They also put a warning:

    edit: ah, the dramatic growth isn't in PC hardware per se, it's only the high-end stuff.

    Re: JPR forecasts dramatic growth in PC hardware inventory and sales

    You don't need a report to tell you this. Many people haven't been able to get CPU's and GPU's to upgrade systems, let alone build a new one. Even now in the UK supplies of GPU's are scarce. When supply increases to the point that I can just go to any parts website and buy one then there will be a rapid increase of sales followed by a slightly decreased "increase" after.
