Tablet Sales Will Hit 381 Million By 2017 Says Analysts

/ 3 years ago


Forrester Analysts predict that by 2017 we could see 381 million tablets per year sold. They suggest that by 2017 one in eight people on earth will be a table user as existing sales of tablets will mean there will be about 905 million tablets in use.

By 2017 they claim that 60% of “online” Americans will own a tablet, 42% of European “online” consumers will have one and in the developing world figures will be much lower. In the developing world penetration rates are expected to be below 25% aggregate. In wealthier markets like Singapore and South Korea they are expected to still do well.

Of the total sales only 18% will be enterprise purchases meaning 82% of total sales will be made up from consumer purchases.
