Market research firm iSuppli slashed its 2009 forecast for PC unit shipments by nearly two-thirds due to "rapidly deteriorating conditions in the global economy and financial system."

The firm originally said it expected global PC shipments would grow 11.9% in 2009; now it is forecasting only 4.3% growth for the year.

iSuppli's 2010 expectations are also down. It is now predicting a 7.1% growth in unit shipments for the year, down from its previous outlook of 9.4% growth.

iSuppli said it believes desktop PC shipments will decline approximately 5% in 2009, but that the notebook category should grow about 15%. The firm said it foresees continued strength in notebooks because "the segment is currently performing very well and has strong momentum"; it also thinks the new lower prices on entry-level netbooks will help drive demand for that particular portion of the notebook market.
