NPD: Apple's March 2007 Desktop, Laptop, and MP3 Marketshare
Bloomberg provided March 2007 marketshare numbers from the NPD Group.
It revealed that for March 2007, Apple was ranked 4th for notebook sales (9.9%), 5th for Desktop sales (7.7%), and #1 for MP3 Player Sales (68.9%).
BetaNews provides a historical perspective on these numbers.
Apple's 9.9% marketshare brings Apple back into the top 5 notebook retailers after it had dropped out in February. Apple's notebook marketshare had been as high as 10.1%, however, in January of this year. The 7.7% Desktop marketshare, however, does represent the first time Apple has placed in the top 5 desktop retailers.
The MP3 marketshare, however, was a decline for Apple, who lost marketshare to SanDisk and Creative.
Note: figures are for "brick and mortar" retail sales only and do not include direct sales, sales from Wal-Mart or warehouse clubs.
