European Microcomputer Statistics (EMS) Committee
The EMS was founded in 1997 to collect vendor-reported PC shipment data and to provide the aggregate totals to the participating members.
Because EMS statistics are based on actual shipment data, this program provides a level of precision 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 EMS 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 EMS 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. The program is in the process of also adding tablet shipments.
