Demand falls: Tablets buying less and less

DigiTimes has published a forecast of the demand of tablets in the second quarter of 2018. And for producers it is clearly disappointing.

The tablet market steadily declining for the 13th consecutive quarter. For the 4th quarter of 2017 sold a total of 49.6 million units, which is 7.9% lower than 2016. And this is the total sales of tablets from all brands, including little-known.

In the first quarter the pace of sales fell to 33 million units. Analysts described the probable reason for this rapid fall — lack of innovations from Apple, a company that is considered an absolute leader in sales in the segment.

And it will be even worse.

By the fall of DigiTimes predict about 31 million of units sold. It turns out, no matter how impressive the features of tablets, the consumer, this category of gadgets are interested in less and less.
