Computer sales in Romania posted a decrease of over 55 percent in volume last year, from 1.08 million units in 2008 to 500,000, according to preliminary data from consultancy company International Data Corporation (IDC). The sector, which includes PCs, notebooks and servers, was affected by the recession which led to a fall in demand from individual consumers and SMEs. Additionally, many projects in the public and private sector were delayed.

However, the last quarter of 2009 saw a growth in the PC market in Romania, compared to previous periods, reaching a volume of 200,000 units. In the first nine months, the local computer market reached 293,500 units.

In 2008, the PC market grew by 15 percent in volume, to 1.08 million units, and by 13 percent in value to more than USD 940 million, according to IDC.
