Worldwide Tablet Market Shares, 1Q18: Slate and Detachable Tablet Shipments Decline, Cautious Optimism Remains

By: Lauren GuenveurSenior Research Analyst, Devices


This IDC study provides an analysis of vendor performance in the tablet market for 1Q18.

"As expected, we saw a significant drop-off in tablet shipments in the first quarter of 2018 as the bulk of inventory is increasingly being pushed in the latter half of each year," said Lauren Guenveur, senior research analyst, IDC's Devices and Displays. "Refreshed products by Apple, as well as Google finally entering the tablet market with Chrome OS should make for an interesting remainder of 2018, as these two behemoths each make a play for growth in the few remaining bright spots — education and enterprise — in the overall market."
