This IDC study provides market sizing and vendor shares of the worldwide ruggedized mobile device market for 2013. In addition, this study provides a worldwide forecast by region for 2014–2018. Total volumes will reach 1.5 million units in 2014 and will grow to 1.6 million units in 2018, resulting in a CAGR of 2.0% for 2013–2018.
"Having gone through several rounds of acquisition and consolidation since 2011, the market is heading for slower growth in the years ahead," says Ramon Llamas, research manager with IDC's Mobile Phones team. "The same key success factors will still be in play — durable and ergonomic design, improved scanning technology, and availability of line-of-business applications. What changes are customer expectations that need full end-to-end solutions beyond the device. Those vendors that can offer these devices and this level of service will be well equipped to respond and support their customers.Please Note: Extended description available upon request.
