ALBANY, New York, June 09, 2016: The increasing use of smartphones and notebook PCs is expected to restrict the growth of the global tablet industry in the years to come. These are the key findings of a new report, titled ‘Development Trends of the Worldwide Tablet Industry, 2016 and Beyond.’ The report is featured on ResearchMoz.us.

A tablet computer, universally known as a tablet, is a mobile computer that comprises a battery, touchscreen display, and circuitry in a single device. Tablets are classified as per the appearance and the presence of keyboards. Although 2-in-1 tablets, convertible tablets, and hybrid tablets have physical keyboards, their users primarily use virtual keyboards. Currently, the worldwide tablet industry is going through a tough phase.   

After five consequent years of rapid growth, the global tablet market is expected to register its first ever downfall in the years to come. The lack of product innovation, market saturation, the introduction of alternate products, and market erosion by low-cost notebook PCs and advanced smartphones are some of the factors expected to hamper the growth of the worldwide tablet industry. As per recent reports, the shipment volume of tablets shrank in 2015 and it is expected to shrink even further during the period from 2016 and beyond.
