Tablets To Hit 117.1 Million Units In 2012, 165.9 Million In 2013

Summary: Apple's iPad will remain the top tablet through 2016, but Windows devices will take some share---mostly from Android, says IDC. 

A strong fourth one fourth for the product industry will convert into 117.1 thousand models for 2012, according to IDC. That projection was raised from IDC's past prediction of 107.4 thousand.

And in 2013, the product industry is expected to hit 165.9 thousand models, up from IDC's past prediction of 142.8 thousand.

The increased forecasts highlight the post-PC era, which has cast doubt on the durability of a Windows 8 upgrade cycle as well as resulted in third one fourth alerts from the likes of Apple and AMD.

IDC also said that the product industry will hit 261.4 thousand models in 2016.

The driver of these product sales remains Apple's iPad, but IDC estimated that new Android operating system and Windows 8 pills will define out marketers. 
Among the notable points:
  • IDC desires Windows tablets---Windows 7 slates today, Windows RT and Windows 8 tablets---to grow from 1 % of the industry this year to 4 % this year. By 2016, Windows pills will have 11 % of the industry.
  • iOS pills will have business of 60 % this year, but slip to 11 % in 2016.
  • Android operating system pills will have business 35.3 % of the industry this year and fall to 30.5 % by 2016.
  • Tablet durability is likely to come at the expense of e-readers. IDC reduced its e-reader prediction to 23.6 thousand models this year, down from 27.7 thousand models this year.
