iPad’s Share of Tablet Market to Dip to 62 Percent This Year
Apple will remain king of the tablet market this year but its reign may be shaken a bit by the ongoing flood of Android devices.
The company will carve off a 62 percent chunk of the tablet market this year, according to a report out yesterday from TrendForce. But that will continue an ongoing decline from 66 percent last year and 87 percent the previous year.
Though the iPad’s market share may be on the downswing, its sales are still headed in the opposite direction. Estimates from TrendForce call for global sales of 59 million units in 2012, up from 40 million last year and 14 million in 2010.
