Tablet PC - Industry Overview

The evolution of the tablet PC is due to the fact that consumers want something more portable than a laptop, more powerful than a netbook, and more comfortable than a smartphone and a Tablet PC could very well fill all of those needs. In 2010, Apple iPad set off a benchmark for Tablet PC on a global scale by selling more than 15 Million units in a single year. Thus virtually compelling all other major consumer electronic manufacturers to introduce there products in the market.

Worldwide Tablet PC market size in 2010 was nearly US$ 9 Billion and it is anticipated that Tablet PC unit sales will cross 100 Million Units by 2015. In 2010, US and Western Europe together holds 75% of Tablet PC unit sales share but they are gradually losing their share to China and Korea. Latin America Tablet PC unit sales and market size will keep on growing year on year but due to aggressive growth by China its market share worldwide will decline year on year. India, Australia, Central and Eastern Europe, Africa and Middle East Tablet PC unit sales and market sizes will keep on increasing year on year (2010 to 2015).

In this digital age Tablet PC is expected to drive massive demand for digital content and services. Telecom service provider is likely to benefit most from it in the same way as they gained from smartphone boom. This is demonstrated by the fact that sales of the 3G iPad make up as much as 40% of total iPad sales. Internet traffic and location based services will increase tremendously thus creating a market for Internet service provider. This will further create a market for online paid content industry.
