Although tablets were expected to go extinct, a new study by Future Market Insights predicts that the demand for such pieces of hardware "will surge extensively in the upcoming years" thanks to multiple reasons. This report claims that global tablet sales for the decade ending in 2026 will bring in no less than US$600 billion.

Tablets were doing great less than a decade ago, but the arrival of large-screen smartphones started pushing this market sector towards annihilation. However, the tablet market is still afloat and — at least according to a forecast by Future Market Insights — it seems like a better future is in store for these products.

The aforementioned research document highlights the following reasons for the growth of the tablet sector:

  • Many tablet designs to hit the market are water-resistant.
  • Manufacturers' focus on delivering highly-functional pieces of hardware.
  • Better acoustic performance in tablet devices.
  • Improved compatibility with 4G LTE networks.
  • Consumers demand of gesture recognition and human-centric capabilities.
  • Enhanced multi-core processing and better battery life.

Although Future Market Insights predicts that Android slates will remain dominant, the aforementioned report also anticipates rising sales of Apple gadgets. If everything works as expected, tablets will rake in more than US$600 billion by the end of 2026 with a compound annual growth rate of 9.1 percent.

Unsurprisingly, China is expected to account for the largest share in the global tablet market, although North America and Europe are supposed to remain key areas for this sector in the coming years as well.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
