For a report I’m preparing for a bank, today I’ve calculated the market share of the Raspberry Pi single board computers (all models) in the worldwide PC market in 2020.
Here it is: 2,69 % (at 7.4 Million shipped Raspberry Pi units in 2020)
Here is how I came up with this figure:
Calculated the amount of Raspberry Pis sold by comparing the “year total sold” in the 2019 and 2020 Raspberry Pi Foundation reports:

- https://static.raspberrypi.org/files/about/RaspberryPiFoundationReview2019.pdf [over 30 Million Raspberry Pi computers sold to date]
Which yields 7.4 Million Raspberry Pi computers sold in 2020.
Lenovo has a 24.9 % market share worldwide, at 68.510.000 shipped units in 2020.
The rest is basic maths:
The number of 2.69 % is confirmed by an interview with Eben Upton here, which claims a 2.5 % market share. Eben is just being humble
