Marking a major milestone in the history of the computer industry, an Asian OEM has captured the No. 2 position in the global PC market on a quarterly basis for the first time, according to iSuppli Corp.

Acer Inc. of Taiwan in 3Q 2009 rose to second place in the worldwide PC business, up from third place during the previous quarter. The company supplanted Dell Inc., which declined to third place during the quarter.

Acer’s PC unit shipments increased by 16.6% in 3Q 2009 compared to the same period a year earlier and by 31% from the second quarter of this year, the iSuppli report said.

U.S. PC OEM Hewlett-Packard Co. extended its unbroken run of No. 1 rankings to 13 quarters with third-quarter shipments of 15.9 million units, up 7% from the third quarter of 2008, giving it a market share of 20%. Third-ranked Dell saw its shipments decline to 10.3 million units, down 5.9% from 10.99 million in the 3Q 2008. Dell’s share of worldwide PC unit shipments amounted to 12.9% during the third quarter.

The report said that the third quarter also marked two other significant milestones for the PC market. First, unit shipments rose on a year-over-year basis for the first time since 4Q 2008. Second, shipments increased at the highest sequential rate since iSuppli began tracking the market in 2003.

Worldwide PC shipments in the third quarter amounted to 79.9 million units. This represented a 1.1% increase from the third quarter of 2008 and a 19% surge from 2Q 2009, said the report.

Given the strong results in the third quarter, iSuppli has revised its 2009 PC unit shipment forecast to a 0.9% decline, compared to the previous forecast of a 4% decrease.
