Digitimes Research analysts predict the successful growth of the global tablet market. There are several reasons for it:
- the expected increase in US state duties on goods from China;
- seasonality, the fact is that the demand for “smart” equipment rises in the cold season;
- an increase in the supply of Huawei tablets in the second half after downtime due to bans and sanctions on the company’s products.
It is worth remarking that shipments of Apple, as well as products from other suppliers, increased. Compared to the previous quarters of this year, deliveries raised by at least 4.5%. At the moment, this figure is 44.32 million devices, and the growth was 1.5% compared with last year.
From July to September 2019, Apple ranks first among suppliers, followed in chronological order by Amazon, Samsung, Huawei, Lenovo, and Microsoft. In the fourth quarter, Samsung is deservedly in the top three, or rather in second place.
