|Worldwide Tablet Market Shares, 2Q18: Slates and Detachables Experience Double-Digit Shipment Declines|

This IDC study provides an analysis of vendor performance in the tablet market for 2Q18."The tablet market continued to struggle as both product categories saw significant shipment declines in the second quarter," said Lauren Guenveur, senior research analyst, IDC's Devices and Displays. "While we expected the slate market to continue its unabated slide, we are concerned by the lack of continued growth in the detachable category. PC OEMs continue to shift their focus back toward convertible and ultraslim notebooks, leaving the detachable market in a state of limbo as we await new products from Microsoft, Apple, and Samsung. These three players continue to carry the bulk of the category, as we remain hopeful that new Windows on Snapdragon products and Chrome OS might bring some enthusiasm back into this category."
