China outpointed US in PC market share this spring and takes the lead as the largest market.

A new research from IDC revealed that China managed to surpass the US as the world’s largest PC market. For all of 2011, US hold on to the lead, but China was able to push past them this spring. China also claimed 22% of all PCs shipped at 18.5 million, while 21% (17.7 million) went to Americans. Due to this scenario, researchers predicted that China will be getting 21.8% for all of 2012, where the US would slip tp 19.6%.

The catch-up in the said populous but poorer country may have resulted from their government plans.
