Demand for Chromebooks more than doubled in 2020

Chromebooks 2020

Demand for Chromebooks grew significantly during 2020 as people were forced to work and learn from home during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is now known how much this demand was.

According to a report by analytics company Canalys, it is estimated that Chromebook shipments more than doubled in 2020, from 14.7 million laptops to 30.7 million. For some PC makers, this growth has been huge - Samsung's shipments have more than quadrupled (although the company had shipments of a more modest 1.9 million devices), while Lenovo has achieved a similar jump, but to 6.8 million Chromebooks.

Growth rose sharply in the last quarter of 2020. Except for Acer, whose shipments rose just 76 percent, the increases were drastic for other companies - Lenovo saw a jump in Chromebook shipments by a staggering 1,766 percent.

Tablets have also seen a sharp rise in demand, but not nearly as big as Chromebooks. Deliveries rose 28 percent in 2020, with Apple, Samsung and Lenovo having the highest demand.
