Boston -- According to the latest research from Strategy Analytics, global tablet revenues will surge to US$49 billion by 2015. North America, Asia Pacific and Western Europe will be the most valuable regions for tablet vendors.
Peter King, Director at Strategy Analytics, said, “We forecast global tablet wholesale revenues to surge from zero in 2009 to US$49 billion in 2015. Tablets are a high-value casual-computing segment that is creating huge growth opportunities for major brands such as Apple and Samsung. We predict 80 percent of the value of the tablet market in 2015 will reside in both high-tier and entry-tier models, as tablets address the opportunities in both developed and emerging markets such as the Asia Pacific region. On a global basis, tablet revenues will exceed those of every consumer electronics category except TVs and PCs by 2015.”
Martin Bradley, Associate Director at Strategy Analytics, added “In terms of revenues, the largest opportunity for tablet vendors will be in North America, Asia Pacific and Western Europe. Although the average selling prices in Asia Pacific will be less than 85 percent of those in Western Europe by 2015, the total value of the Asia Pacific region will exceed Western Europe by this time.”
