While Macs are ever-popular with students and consumers, enterprises have traditionally been more of an uphill battle for a number of reasons; and government sales pretty much don’t exist. Needham & Co.’s Charlie Wolfe, in a note to clients, broke down the latest market share numbers by category. According to IDC’s latest report for Q2, Mac sales grew 35% compared to the standard market growth rate of 20.9%. Wolfe notes that Mac shipments in government, however, grew an astonishing 200%; sixteen times more than market growth of 12.1%. Enterprise growth was also successful at a 49.8% increase which is over three times higher than the market’s 15.7%. Additionally, Wolfe indicates Apple’s European home market share doubled between Q1 and Q2 thanks to in large part to the iPhone.
