Online Computer & Tablet Sales - Industry Market Research Report

Online Computer & Tablet Sales

The Online Computer and Tablet Sales industry in the United States is expected to rise sharply over the five years to 2019 as demand for tablet computers and laptop-tablet hybrid computers has boomed. Moreover, a surging percentage of services conducted online and rising per capita disposable income levels have led to increasing e-commerce spending. Although desktop computer sales have suffered, users are looking to tablets and laptops for more mobile alternatives, prompting replacement expenditure. The industry is expected to continue growing over the five years to 2024. Improving per capita disposable income and rising consumer confidence are projected to maintain a strong base of sales, while revenue from e-commerce is forecast to continue rising as traditional brick-and-mortar sales stumble. In addition to improving external conditions, product innovation and new technologies will further bolster industry growth.

Operators in the Online Computer and Tablet Sales industry retail desktop, notebook and tablet computers via the internet. While most players purchase goods from domestic and international manufacturers and wholesalers, and then sell them to end consumers, there are also manufacturers that bypass the middleman and directly sell their goods to end consumers.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
