Growth of portable PC market widely known as India Laptop market has experienced a volatile trend over the last few quarters. However, slow growth of the India Laptop market was revived after the completion of various pending government deals in Uttar Pradesh and Tamil Nadu. During 4Q 2013, the market declined by 56% over the 3Q 2013. Whereas, the market registered a growth of 102% in 2Q 2014 as compared to 1Q 2014.
