Tablet Customer & Channel Type Shipment and Installed Base Forecast by Region 2010 - 2021: Q4 17 Update

Report Summary:

Demand for tablets in enterprise is heating up, driven by efficiencies gained through mobility, greater emphasis on data security, and new use cases enabled by new tablet designs. Sadly, these advantages have not fully translated to the consumer market, which is in a slump dating back to 2014. Shipment declines in this segment are projected to continue for the next several years and most tablet vendors have few tools available to compete in enterprise market as a way to escape.

All is not lost, however. We believe that the consumer market will slowly begin gaining steam late in the decade, giving vendors that remain in the tablet market a chance to reap rewards after overcoming the current hyper-competitive environment. Understanding which channels will provide the greatest opportunities for growth, what the opportunities and risks are of entering new channels, and how quickly and in which regions the consumer and enterprise markets will grow will be crucial for any company planning to stake a claim in new growth.
In this report we forecast tablet shipments and installed base by consumer market and non-consumer/enterprise market and shipments by channel (e.g., Mobile Operators, Electronics Retailers, Handset Retailers, Independent Retailers, Mass Merchandisers, Direct from Vendors, Pure e-Commerce Retailers) across the period of 2010-2021 to quantify demand by customer type and channel. This report covers 6 regions of North America, Western Europe, Asia Pacific, Central & Latin America, Central & Eastern Europe, and Africa & Middle East. This report is published during Q4 2017, following actual Q3 2017 results. It updates and supersedes the Tablet Customer Type & Channel Type Shipment and Installed Base Forecast by Region 2010-2021: Q3 2017 Update report published in September 2017.
