After a brief respite throughout last year, the global PC market returned to its pre-2014 slump in the first quarter of 2015.

Follow up:

According to Gartner's latest estimates, worldwide PC shipments amounted to 71.73 million in the past three months - down 5.2 percent from last year's March quarter.

The struggling PC industry had received a boost when Microsoft ended official Windows XP support in April 2014, prompting a replacement cycle that has now apparently faded. The overall decline was mainly driven by slumping desktop sales, whereas shipments of notebooks, hybrids and Windows tablets actually improved.

This chart shows the year-over-year growth of global PC shipments.
