Philips most popular in Q1 2017, HP most connected
Philips took over the pole position in the Icecat Top 10 Brands of Q1-2017, based on nearly 4 billion data-sheet downloads. Computer brands HP and Lenovo complete the top 3. Belkin also improved its relative position a lot, based on a 600% surge in popularity of its products.
In terms of connectivity to ebusiness platforms, HP, Samsung and ASUS stand out, which is logical as the degree of ebusiness integration in the IT channel is the highest compared to any other sector.
