ABI Research: More than 156M branded tablets to ship in 2020

ABI Research predicted that 156 million tablets will ship in 2020, marking a 3 per cent CAGR for the device category between 2015 and 2020. The research company said this is despite a downward revision in tablet forecasts in response to continued pressure on shipments and revenues by Apple, Samsung and other leading vendors. According to the latest research, branded tablet revenues reached approximately $55 billion (€50 billion) in 2015, down from $68 billion in 2014. While revenues are expected to remain flat in 2016, ABI Research projects last year's retail selling prices (ASPs) to drop below $400 for the first time. Release
