Mobile Tablet Device Market Report

Tablet shipments are expected to fall 8 percent in 2015, but 2-in-1 devices will see strong growth, as reported by IDC data.

Initially IDC had forecast a decline of 3.8 percent in 2015, but now sees shipments falling even more.

Tablet shipments will reach 212 million with 14.7 million of those 2-in-1 devices similar to Microsoft’s Surface and convertibles from the likes of HP, Dell and Lenovo.

Two-in-one devices are expected to see growth of 86.5 percent from a small base. Analysts are stating that the growth will continue as PC makers develop better designs and Windows 10 gains traction. At the same time, prices are falling and that fact will goose shipments. Traditional tablet prices will run about $300 due to Android devices.

IDC analyst Ryan Reith said in a statement, “We estimate that over 40 different vendors shipped 2-in-1 products in the second quarter of 2015, which is up from just 14 vendors two years ago. With the launch of Windows 10, the introduction of more Android-based products, and the possibility that Apple will unveil a larger, screen-detachable iPad, this is the space to watch.”

On the enterprise front, companies have been reluctant to invest in tablets and PCs. There’s a good reason for that: Why would a company want two upgrade cycles? As 2-in-1 devices become true PC replacements, it’s possible that enterprises will gravitate toward convertibles.
