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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
