  • The US tablet sales market had total revenues of $16.5bn in 2017, representing a compound annual rate of change (CARC) of -7.9% between 2013 and 2017.
  • Market consumption volumes declined with a CARC of -0.2% between 2013 and 2017, to reach a total of 61.8 million units in 2017.
  • The US tablet sales market contracted in the historic period, much like the rest of the world, due to declining demand and the emergence of cheaper tablets on the market, which led to reduced spending by consumers who ultimately chose more affordable models.
