End of confinements = fewer tablets sold

After two record years linked to lockdowns, the tablet market is returning to "normal" values.

According to the latest figures from the firm International Data Corporation (IDC), the global tablet market has returned to normal after record growth in 2020 and 2021. Indeed, people stuck at home due to confinements had thrown themselves on iPads and other tablets to work or take your mind off things at home.

The word to Anuroopa Nataraj from IDC

In the first quarter of 2022, 38.4 million tablets were sold worldwide, i.e. 3.9% less than in the same period last year (see table above). After a frenzy of purchases in 2020 and 2021, users therefore keep their tablets and do not feel the need to renew them. “While the tablet market is on a downward slope globally due to declining demand in mature market regions, it is interesting to see new competitors entering emerging markets, particularly smartphone manufacturers. like Oppo, Xiaomi and others,” says Anuroopa Nataraj of IDC.
