At the end of January we checked out research from Good Technology and Forrester Research, now it was time for the analysis firm Needham & Company to comment on Apple's growth in the business market.
According to analyst Charlie Wolf, the sale of Macs to corporations grew 50.9% at the end of last year, much more than Apple's overall growth average in the computer segment.
Driven primarily by iPhones and iPads, the market share worldwide Macs in companies rose from 1.3% in the first quarter of 2010 to 2.9% today. If we are going to limit the data to the United States, growth in the same period went from 3.1% to 5.8%.
Of course, despite this increase in business participation, Apple still dominates with its Macs in homes. In the last quarter of 2011, domestic Mac sales accounted for 63% of the total; business, 21%; education, 15%; finally, the government was left with only 1%.
