Dell has announced plans to more than double its market share in China to 20 per cent by 2010, taking advantage of IBM's recent exit from the market.
Chief executive Kevin Rollins told the Financial Times that Dell has been winning customers from Lenovo since the Chinese manufacturer bought IBM's PC business earlier this year. Dell registered 30 per cent growth in the second quarter of 2005.
Dell entered the Chinese market in 1998 and is now the third largest PC seller in the country, registering 8.4 per cent of the market in the first quarter of this year, according to analyst firm IDC.
The country accounts for three per cent of Dell's global sales, and manufactures eight per cent of its computers.
But Dell stressed that it has no plans to overtake Lenovo, the market leader in China with 25 per cent of the market. Lenovo became the world's third largest PC vendor after the IBM purchase.
