Laptop shipments (in Japan) hit a record high (in 2020).

Laptop shipments in Japan hit a record high in 2020. Computer sales soared as the COVID-19 pandemic gave rise to widespread telecommuting.

An industry association says more than 10 million personal computers were shipped in 2020. That’s up 7.4 percent from the previous year and an increase for the third year in a row.

The number of laptop computer shipments was nearly 9 million, up 25 percent. In December alone, laptop shipments more than doubled from a year earlier to 1.5 million units.

Experts say the rise came as more people worked from home due to the novel coronavirus. They also cite an accelerated rollout of personal computers in classrooms.

There is a similar trend worldwide. “Prior to 2020, consumers had been shifting to a phone-first focus,” a U.S. technology research firm says. “The pandemic reversed this trend. PCs have resurfaced as an essential device.”
