Worldwide Tablet Forecast, 2018–2022

By: Lauren GuenveurSenior Research Analyst, Devices


This IDC study provides the five-year forecast of the tablet market in 2018–2022. Detailed views of product type, segment, operating system (OS), region, screen size, and connectivity type are provided.

"The tablet market is no longer in the free fall stage as it was in 2015 and 2016 where we saw double-digit declines. The trajectory of the market is not expected to change, although the rate at which we expect slate shipments to decline has slowed a bit," says Lauren Guenveur, senior research analyst, IDC's Devices and Displays. "We do see detachable shipments grow continuously year after year; however, this category has failed to make a significant impact on the overall market. Without addressing several fundamental issues we see within the detachable category, we continue to push the inflection point beyond our forecast window."
