Tablet Shipments, Installed Base and Penetration Forecast by Country 2010-2021: Q3 17 Update

Report Summary:

People love using tablets and own over 800 million worldwide in 2017. The basic slate is a favorite device for casual activities and high performance 2-in-1s serve PC replacement needs for consumers and enterprise. Unfortunately, 2-in-1 segment growth is not enough to buoy the industry as a whole. Consumers have very little reason to upgrade their basic slates to new models, contributing to declining growth since 2015. Can the tablet be reimagined to drive a second major growth period?

We believe that vendors and operators can still take steps to encourage greater replacement rates, higher cellular attach rates, and more content consumption. By understanding what motivates a consumer to delay device replacement or choose different computing devices, vendors can target key consumer concerns with differentiated products and services. With a clear grasp of pain points users feel without true mobility and in accessing valuable video and gaming content, carriers and content distributors can tap into a vast market of opportunity waiting to be found.
