Worldwide Tablet Forecast Update, 2017–2021: 3Q17

By: Lauren GuenveurSenior Research Analyst, Devices


This IDC study provides an overview of the tablet market for 2017–2021. Detailed views of regional, OS, screen sizes, and tablet product type are provided.

"The detachable category cautiously returned to growth in the latest quarter, as anticipated, with Apple's new iPad Pros projecting shipments upward," says Lauren Guenveur, senior research analyst, IDC's Devices and Displays. "Slate shipments continue to outpace our current forecast; however, we expect there to be a large adjustment period in the new year as slates are expected to suffer from a severe holiday hangover, and we anticipate Windows on ARM detachables to be widely introduced throughout the new year."
