Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Laptops uniquely have a trackpad and keypad as part of the system. With hybrid laptops in the market, which can have detachable parts, over the next five years we will see laptops that will have increased computing power and wireless charging once they are docked into a keypad or touchpad. Following this, as per industry experts, voice recognition, eyeball tracking, and hand gestures will evolve. Though the trackpad and keypad will not disappear in the coming years, a future with no keyboards cannot be ruled out. Such laptops will essentially contain high- definition cameras to make any surface a virtual keypad, and one camera will track the hand movements. However, this is an idea for the future.”
According to the report, laptops are segmented into three main products: Chromebooks/netbooks, hybrid laptops, and traditional laptops. Of the three segments, the traditional laptop segment will witness a negative growth rate. Chromebooks/netbooks have a much lower ASP and there has been increased demand for them. However, even with the increase in their unit shipments, Chromebooks/netbooks do not contribute much revenue to the market because of their low ASP of $328. Therefore, the main growth will be a result of the consumer preference for innovative products such as hybrid laptops, which can function in different modes such as tent, display, or even tablet.
Further, the report states that one of the biggest challenges the laptop industry is facing is the increased need for mobile facilities.
