(PRWEB UK) 4 May 2013
According to the new report 'Global Tablet Market Report 2013-2018' since its release in 2010, Apple's iPad has been a market leader in this new device category. Keen to mimic Apple's success many companies from internet search giant Google to rival OEMs such as Samsung have launched their own tablets, however Apple still currently hold the majority of the tablet market. Between 2011 and 2012 Apples market share slipped below 50% of the first time, suggesting that fierce competition from rivals may finally topple Apple's dominance. This report has determined that the value of the global tablet market in 2013 will reach $53.6bn.
Key amongst Apple's new rivals are Microsoft who is simultaneously trying to capture market share from apple in both the smartphone and tablet market spaces. By mimicking Apple's supply chain model Microsoft are making a clear bid for dominance in the tablet market, but with insignificant sales and market share in 2013, will they have triumphed in 2018?
The 136 page report 'Global Tablet Market Report 2013-2018', forecasts the tablet market, in detail by region and by price point.
