n a long time, there have been positive signs of growth for the first time in worldwide PC shipments after its declining phase.

The US technology and office equipment rental and leasing industry includes about 820 establishments (single-location companies and units of multi-location companies) with combined annual revenue of about $3 billion.
Competitive Landscape
Demand is driven by business activity, especially in industries that rely heavily on technology. The profitability of individual companies depends on the merchandising mix and the cost of financing rental inventory. Large companies have economies of scale in buying equipment and having multiple outlets to lease the equipment. Smaller companies can compete by providing specialty products for local markets and superior customer service. The US industry is concentrated: the top 50 companies account for about 85% of revenue.
Competition in the industry is concentrated on price. Companies may compete for customers who prefer to buy new or used equipment rather than lease it.
