Worldwide Tablet Market Declines Again, iPad Pro Outsells Microsoft Surface [Chart]

The worldwide tablet market declined again over the holidays with 65.9 million units shipped in 4Q15, down 13.7% year over year, reports IDC. Total shipments for 2015 were 206.8 million, down -10.1% from 230.1 million in the prior year. However, despite the downward trajectory of shipments, detachable tablets reached an all-time high of 8.1 million devices.The transition towards detachable devices appears to be in full swing as pure slate tablets experienced their greatest annual decline to date of -21.1%. On the other hand, detachable tablets more than doubled their shipments since the fourth quarter of last year.”Despite lukewarm reviews, the iPad Pro was the clear winner this season as it was the top selling detachable, surpassing notable entries from Microsoft and other PC vendors”, said Jitesh Ubrani, Senior Research Analyst with IDC’s Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Device Trackers.
