Worldwide Business Use Tablet Forecast, 2017–2021

This IDC study presents the five-year forecast for the worldwide business use of tablet shipments by operating system and user type (consumer, individual liable, and corporate liable). It is part of IDC's continuing research with respect to mobile devices. Findings in this document are based on information gathered from primary and secondary sources during the past six months."The consumer tablet market is having a tremendous impact on business use tablet shipments as tablets face increased competition from large-screened smartphones and lightweight laptops," says Bryan Bassett, research analyst for IDC's Enterprise Mobility: Deployment Strategies program. "However, corporate-liable business use tablets still have room for growth in the coming years as the detachable tablet market continues to mature."
