Worldwide Tablet Forecast Update, 2018–2022: 3Q18

This IDC study provides a five-year forecast for the tablet market for 2018–2022."The tablet market is projected to decline 8.9% in 2018, with both slate and detachable shipments considerably weaker than 2017," said Lauren Guenveur, senior research analyst, IDC's Devices and Displays. "Although launches by Apple, Microsoft, and Samsung will push the detachable category into growth for the fourth quarter, persistent declines in the first nine months of 2018 will result in an overall shipment decline for the category — the first time detachables have failed to see annual growth since the category's inception in 2012."
