Worldwide Tablet Market Shares, 3Q17: Detachables Cautiously Return to Growth After Three Quarters of Decline

By: Lauren GuenveurSenior Research Analyst


This IDC study provides an analysis of vendor performance in the tablet market for 3Q17.

"I don't believe anyone is surprised by the continued decline of the slate category, though on a somewhat positive note, that decline has slowed over the past few quarters from double digits to single digits," said Lauren Guenveur, senior research analyst, IDC's Devices and Displays. "As anticipated, detachables were able to return to growth at 0.8% after a worrisome downturn in much of 2017. We can expect this positive trajectory to continue with the potential for a strong holiday cycle and new product launches expected in early 2018."
