The personal-computing market, long known to be struggling, is in worse shape than most analysts believed — and that’s bad news for the handful of tech giants that continue to derive the bulk of their revenue from this still vast, but quickly declining, industry. Behemoths like Microsoft, Intel, Hewlett-Packard, Dell and Lenovo have generally failed to build much presence in tech’s new growth markets even as their core PC business shrinks.If the PC industry’s “big five” can’t successfully find new frontiers in emerging areas like mobile, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, the cloud and analytics, the consequences for both Wall Street and Main Street could be severe. Despite their shrinking market, these vendors collectively still employ more than 640,000 workers and represent a combined market capitalization (excluding privately held Dell) of $655 billion. Their decline’s effects could quickly ripple through the economy.

Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) is at the forefront of the Internet-of-Things (IoT), according to a recent report by IoT Analytics. Learning from its relatively late entry into the mobile market  – as a result of which it is still struggling to catch up with Qualcomm – the company entered the IoT space at an early stage, and has been aggressively pushing new products, platforms and partnerships to gain a wide footprint in the market. For over two decades, Intel has been the leader in the PC chip market, accounting for a substantial majority of global microprocessor sales. However, the company’s top line growth has been hit by a slowdown in PC sales over the last few years. Can IoT be the next big thing for Intel, drastically lowering the company’s dependence on the PC market?
