The report states that India’s tablet market is noticing 29% of QoQ, quarter to quarter, with 7% YoY growth in 5G tablets. Tablets with Wi-Fi connectivity noticed 12% YoY growth and amounted to 54% of total shipments. Moreover, the growth in demand for premium-range tablets increased by 48% QoQ. Despite such favorable growth statistics, India’s overall tablet market registered a 22% YoY decline compared to Q2 2023.

According to Menka Kumari, Analyst at IIG, CyberMedia Research, the tablet market growth is driven by the adoption of Wi-Fi-enabled tablets in the healthcare and education sectors. The shift towards 5G tablets hints at the immense possibilities and revolution in work.

In a previously shared report for Q2 2023, Apple, Samsung, and Lenovo were on the list of the top three laptop manufacturers, with an overall market share of around 25%, 25%, and 23%. The tablets with 8-inch display sizes amounted to 18% of shipments, while the 10-inch or larger display size tablets contributed 73% of the entire shipment.
