CORSAIR CEO Cites New Survey Showing 84% of 2020 High-Spend PC Builders to Upgrade in 2024/2025

CORSAIR® (NASDAQ: CRSR), a world leader in high-performance gear for gamers and content creators, today shared compelling results from a new DFC Intelligence Survey, indicating strong upside potential to the PC hardware and components market over the next two years. According to the DFC survey, 84% of PC enthusiasts and gamers who built PC systems in 2020 within the high-spend segment plan to either build or buy new PCs over the next 24 months. These findings underscore the strength of the expected surge in consumer demand within Corsair's key PC hardware markets.

The survey, conducted by DFC Intelligence to study spending habits of PC gaming enthusiasts, polled over 1,000 PC builders and buyers, asking “When do you plan on your next PC build or purchase?” as well as how much respondents spent annually on gaming and associated hardware. DFC found that 60% of respondents who built PCs in 2019 expressed intentions to build or purchase new systems in the next two years. This number rose to a staggering 84% amongst those who built PCs during COVID lockdown and who typically invest $2,000 or more annually in their gaming passion.

Andy Paul, Chief Executive Officer of CORSAIR, stated, “We have been saying for some time that gamers who built gaming PCs and bought peripherals during the pandemic, would likely upgrade again in the usual 3–4 year refresh cycle. The findings from DFC agree with this hypothesis and point to robust demand for PC hardware in 2024, which we expect CORSAIR to directly benefit from. We are well-positioned thanks to our industry-leading portfolio of products designed specifically for the gaming market, ranging from DIY kits to high-performance components and peripherals. Corsair helps gamers game better and look better while playing.”
