Tablet growth resumes

Tablet growth resumes

 

Tablet sales peaked  at 230 million units in 2014.

After that, the market cooled off significantly with the realisation that people would use their tablets longer than they would use their phones.

Then smartphones grew larger and larger, putting the need to buy an additional device into question for many consumers.

Global tablet shipments gradually dropped from 230 million in 2014 to 145 million in 2019, before climbing back to 164 million last year.
