Asia Pacific Microcomputer Statistics Committee (APMSC)
The APMSC was founded in 1997 to collect vendor-reported PC shipment data and to provide the aggregate totals to the participating members.
Because the APMSC reports are based on actual PC shipment data for the Asia Pacific region, this program provides a level of accuracy that is not available from any third-party sources. Consistent and reliable information about market size and growth allows members to measure their company’s performance relative to the market in an objective manner. Since its formation, the APMSC has made a number of reporting program enhancements and has coordinated the exchange of data with other international PC statistics programs.
Benefits to participants
The APMSC program provides participating members with the most accurate, reliable, and cost-effective PC market statistics available.
Committee members have fast access to MONTHLY data covering desktop and portable (business-marketed, home-marketed, and personal workstations) and server shipments on a monthly basis. The program is in the process of also adding tablet shipments.
Generally once per year, the APMSC will develop a three year consensus forecast that provides a detailed view as to market growth and trends by form factor and technology.
