Tablet growth will be at the expense of PC sales


Tablet growth will be at the expense of PC sales

Simon Quicke

Tablets shows no sign of slowing up and should continue to grow and eat into PC sales over the next couple of years if the predictions from JP Morgan Securities are right.

The financial specialist has predicted that tablets will have become a $35bn market by 2012 as the number of vendors offerings products expands and the competition around pricing heats up.

Tablets should also continue to have success gaining sales in vertical markets, particularly education, over the course of this year.

JP Morgan had originally expected the market this year to be worth $24.9bn but has revised that upwards to $26.1bn.

According to reports on Reuters the expectation is that around a third of sales will be cannabilistic at the cost of netbooks and notebook sales.
