As if we need more proof that the Swiss have an exquisite taste for good design, the Pingdom blog measured visitor data across a sample size of three million websites and found that Switzerland has the highest percentage of Mac users than any other with a 17.61% share. Luxembourg comes in second with a 15.79% share while the US occupies the third slot with a 15.36% share. Countries that just missed the top 10 include the UK, Japan, and France. Interestingly, Nordic countries seem to love their Macs as all five of them (Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, and Denmark) all made the top 20.
Breaking the data down per region, North America has the highest percentage of OS X marketshare at 14.09%. Somewhat surprisingly, South America brings up the rear with 1.08%, behind both Africa and Asia.
Some interesting data for sure, and the charts above help highlight just how much room for growth Apple has in the PC market going forward, particularly in countries within Asia. While some analysts have expressed skepticism that Apple can continue on the astronomical trajectory of growth and profitability it’s enjoyed with the iPod, iPhone, iPad, and the Mac, the success of the former products can only help spur sales of the latter.
