Monitor sizes at least 21" wide continued to lead the way, racking up its sixth consecutive quarter, capturing 20.5 percent of the market. Dell (14.9 percent) is the No. 1 manufacturer with Samsung (13.2 percent) trailing in the No. 2 position, while Hewlett-Packard (11.5 percent), LG (10.5 percent), and Lenovo (7.8 percent) trail behind.

"Despite the overall decline, the shipment totals were stronger than the forecast of 31 million units," said Phuong Hang, IDC Worldwide Trackers Program Director, in a press statement. "Geographically, Japan and the Middle East and Africa (MEA) regions delivered the largest gains during the first quarter while Dell and HP both experienced solid shipment growth."
