Computers and Laptop Market Trends, Challenges and Opportunities

Change perceptions of AI

Despite there being many tools to help manage screen use, concerns about screen time persist, particularly for younger consumers and parents with children under 18. To help build a healthy relationship with computers, brands can utilise AI to generate personalised recommendations based on an analysis of a consumer’s screen use.

  • Laptop statistics: 43% of consumers are concerned about how much time they spend looking at their desktop, laptop or tablet screens.

Consumers want to do more with fewer devices

Lifestyles have been reinvented post-pandemic, with many putting more focus on flexibility between home life and work life. This has been reflected in the increasing ownership of all-in-one laptops. Brands have the opportunity to take the ‘less is more’ approach in marketing messages and highlight how the versatility of all-in-one laptops fits into the flexible lifestyles that consumers want.

  • Laptop ownership trends: 29% of hybrid workers own a laptop with a detachable/fold-back touchscreen, suitable for multipurpose.
