Worldwide Tablet Forecast Update, 2017–2021: 2Q17

This IDC study provides an overview of the tablet market for 2017–2021. Detailed views of regional, OS, screen sizes, and tablet product type are provided."We were pleasantly surprised by the strong performance of the slate category in 2Q17; however, we believe that the category will continue to decay in the long term, albeit at a slightly slower pace," says Lauren Guenveur, senior research analyst, IDC's Devices and Displays. "Concerns linger in the detachable category, but strong product refreshes by Apple and Microsoft will benefit shipments in the back half of 2017."
