Monday, November 28, 2011

Argentina's PC market could move 4.5mn units - including desktops and laptops - in 2012 compared to some 4mn this year, local consultancy firm Carrier y Asociados director Enrique Carrier told BNamericas.

The analyst said the figure for next year could be lower, depending on the local economy's performance and how the international economic slowdown affects it.

Carrier said that government digital inclusion program Conectar Igualdad will continue to be one of the market's main growth drivers. In 2011, the program is expected to have acquired some 1.5mn laptops, while for next year the figure is seen reaching 1.8mn.

Meanwhile, the country is set to close December with 33% of homes with at least one PC, up from 11% at end-2010.
