According to the report, the global tablet market is projected to register a healthy CAGR of 20.6% in terms of value and 9.1% in terms of volume during the forecast period (2016 – 2026).

Tablet is a portable, wireless personal computer integrated with a touchscreen interface and also available with an additional option of stylus. Tablet is typically larger than a smartphone but smaller than a notebook. Tablets come in a range of varied designs, features, dimensions, and types. Tablets serve the consumer with versatile benefits including entertainment, smart business, and office computing among others.

According to Future Market Insights analysts, an increase in the disposable income and subsequently a rise in consumer purchasing power has led to the adoption of tablets among a wider class of society and this is likely to fuel the growth of the global tablet market over the forecast period. Further, emerging markets such as India, China, and Brazil are also showing increasing adoption of tablets and this is another key driver for growth of the global tablet market. Consumer usage patterns have shifted over the years and tablet usage is no longer restricted to entertainment alone. Consumers are relying on tablets for official purposes and to carry out e-commerce transactions and this is likely to boost the global tablet market revenue during the forecast period.
