Worldwide Tablet Forecast, 2016 - 2020

The report finds that the weakened global economy significantly affected consumer demand for tablets in 2015. Coupled with sluggish shipments of white-box tablets, the global tablet market dipped further in 2015 to 206.42 million units, down 14.8% year-on-year. Furthermore, while 7" and 8-9.x" tablets witnessed declines, those with screen sizes larger than 10" increased to 19% in 2015 up from 15.2% in 2014, owing to growing needs for 2-in-1 tablets. Several notebook PC branded vendors are aggressive in launching their own 2-in-1 products. Hence, 2-in-1 tablets are forecast to witness over 90% growth in 2016.
