Worldwide Rugged Mobile Device Forecast, 2018-2022

This IDC study provides market sizing of the worldwide rugged mobile device market for 2017. In addition, the study provides a worldwide forecast by mobile operating system for 2018–2022."In the coming years, Android will power the majority of rugged mobile devices shipped worldwide in the wake of Windows OS devices leaving the market," says Bryan Bassett, senior research analyst for IDC's Enterprise Mobility: Deployment Strategies program. "Android is uniquely positioned to become the dominant mobile OS in this space, as currently no other mobile OS is equipped to address the specific demands of the rugged mobile market in terms of scale, ecosystem, and flexibility."
