Worldwide Tablet Market Shares, 4Q17: Holiday Season Fails to Boost Slate Shipments; Detachables Grow 13%

Worldwide Tablet Market Shares, 4Q17: Holiday Season Fails to Boost Slate Shipments; Detachables Grow 13%

This IDC study provides an analysis of vendor performance in the tablet market for 4Q17."The holiday season did little to boost shipments of slate tablets as we continue to see that side of the market deteriorate," said Lauren Guenveur, senior research analyst, IDC's Devices and Displays. "Detachables grew at a healthy 13% year over year, driven in large part by the 10.5in. iPad Pro, as well as a strong showing by RCA. However, we continue to caution that growth of the detachables category will be dampened if the midsegment of the market continues to be ignored."
