MacObserver is reporting that the Gartner Group has released a report citing new market share levels. Apple Inc. saw its market share within the United State rise to 5.1% for the final calendar quarter of 2006 according to the report, placing the company at fifth in U.S. computer sales and only slightly behind Tobisha’s 5.3% market share.
During Apple’s Wednesday conference call to announce its quarterly earnings, the company noted that its current growth rate is “three times IDC’s latest published market growth rate estimate for the December quarter.” During the third quarter of 2004, Apple had watched its U.S. market share dwindle from 3.6% to 3.2%.
Hewlett Packard stands as the current worldwide leader in computer sales, holding a 17.4% global market share compared to Dell’s 13.9% market share. Dell still leads Hewlett Packard by a small but deteriorating margin according to the report.
