Acer warns of oversupply of laptops as inflation concerns rise

Due to the surge in COVID demand for business and consumer desktops and laptops, PC makers have struggled to build enough computers and source many components. However, as store shelves are now mostly stocked, demand for PCs has slowed due to inflation and uncertainties caused by the war in Ukraine. As a result, Acer President Jason Chen warned this week that an oversupply of laptops was coming.

Weakening consumer demand for PCs

Rising prices for energy, food and other essentials have led to record inflation rates around the world. As a result, many people are reconsidering their consumption habits and reducing their tech purchases. In general, the past few months have not been particularly good for client PC sales in the consumer sector, reports DigiTimes. Acer, Asus and HP have indicated in recent weeks that the consumer market is showing signs of weakness and demand is declining.
