Surface 2 tablet

Strategy Analytics forecasts global business tablet shipments will grow at a 6 percent CAGR between 2015 and 2020, reaching 110.2 million units in 2020.

“While the tablet market overall has become somewhat saturated resulting in slowed growth, business tablet shipments are expected to be a bright spot and ramp up in the next several years as businesses shift computing models from PCs or laptops to 2-in-1 tablets,” said Gina Luk, Senior Analyst of Mobile Workforce Strategies and author of the report.

“Partnerships forged by vendors such as Apple, Samsung, Microsoft, and HP demonstrate how these players see the tablet potential in the Enterprise,” Luk added.

Andrew Brown, Executive Director of Enterprise Research at Strategy Analytics said, “In addition, work being done in areas such as security, bespoke enterprise apps, always-on connectivity, ruggedized designs, and accessory support will make this push into enterprise a longer-term success.”
