According to the latest Canalys figures, tablet sales are plummeting as post-pandemic demand declines.
Analyst companies have found that tablet sales fell 2.8% year-on-year, from 39,716 to 38,595. This is because the boom in work tablets has finally begun to decline.
However, Amazon was able to counter this trend with tablet sales up 3.3% and its market share rising from 8.7% to 9.2%.
Who dominates the market?
Canalys has reduced Amazon’s relatively good performance to a significant discount on the Amazon Fire tablet series.
Apple has taken the lead in the global tablet market, with shipments of 14.88 million units and a market share of 38.6%, with overall shipments down 2% from the first quarter of 2021.
According to the survey, Samsung shipped 7.86 million units with a market share of 20.4%, and total shipments decreased by 1.7% from the same period in 2021.
Studies show that not all tablet providers have been hit equally hard by market changes.
Huawei and Lenovo were particularly hit, with sales down 21.7% and 20%, respectively.
The tablet market wasn’t the only place to feel the end of the first pandemic hybrid working boom.
According to Canalys, the laptop and PC market as a whole was also sluggish, with total shipments down 2.9% from 2021.
Approximately 5 million Chromebooks shipped worldwide in the first quarter of 2022, reducing shipments from all major vendors by double digits. This is due to the decline in education-related purchases by analysts.
HP had the worst performance in Chromebook shipments, with sales down 82% to 775,000 units.
According to Canalys, the tablet market is also facing an uncertain future in terms of supply chains, with the war between Russia and Ukraine remaining and the Covid-19 blockade in China remaining, perpetuating tablet production. Problems occur.
