Apple iPad Set To Dominate $20 Billion Tablet IndustryFeb 8th, 2010 | By James Lewin | Category: Apple iPad
According to In-Stat:
- The Total Available Market for tablets will be about 50 million in 2014.
- Mainstream tablets should be in the $400-$500 range.
- Apple is the only company that will offer an entire solution that includes content and applications.
“Tablets have quickly become a high priority for competitors across the value chain, including mobile operators,” says Jim McGregor, In-Stat analyst. “Even more important, is that the opportunity in tablets is complementary to other mobile devices, particularly smartphones and netbooks.”
In-Stats’ view on the iPad and the tablet computer market is much rosier than that of many analysts. But they accurately point out that, if tablet computing does take off, Apple is positioned to have a complete solution years ahead of other companies.
Do you think that the market for tablet computers in 2014 will be anywhere near the 50 million that In-Stat predicts?
