New Delhi/Gurugram, 16 May 2022: As per new insights from CMR’s Tablet PC Market Report Review for Q1 2022 released today, the India Tablet market grew 68% year-on-year (YoY), while 4G Tablets recorded growth of 74% YoY.

According to Menka Kumari, Analyst-Industry Intelligence Group (IIG), CMR, “Driven by the pandemic and the continuous rise and ebb of the COVID19 cases, many of the sectors are persisting with hybrid or remote work. This is continuing to fuel the adoption of Tablets for work, e-learning and content consumption use cases.  The education and healthcare sector have contributed to the uptick in the overall tablet market in India.”

Shipment of Tablets with 8 inches display constituted 26% of the overall shipments in the Indian market. On the other hand, Tablets with 10-inch and above displays contributed to 61% of the shipments.

Lenovo (36%), Apple (22%), and Samsung (22%) captured the top three spots in the tablet leaderboard in Q1 2022, followed by Realme and Lava in Q1 2022.

Future Outlook

CMR anticipates the Tablet PC shipments to record a healthy 10-12% growth in 2022.

“Driven by the increasingly availability of 5G-capable Tablets, as well as with new market entrants such as Xiaomi with its Pad 5, the Tablet Market in India is going to gain strength. With other potential Tablet market entrants, such as OPPO, vivo and OnePlus, in the offing, the consumers have more choices than before in the Android Tablet market. On the enterprise side, the commercial and government sector will continue to gain strength owing to the traction in digital economy and egovernance,” added Menka.

Notes for Editors

  1. This release is based on the CyberMedia Research (CMR) India Quarterly Tablet PC Market Review published at the conclusion of every calendar quarter.
  2. The figures captured are of both enterprise and consumer shipments.
  3. CyberMedia Research (CMR) uses the term ‘shipments’ to describe the number of Tablets leaving the factory premises for OEM sales or stocking by distributors and retailers. For the convenience of media, the term ‘shipments’ is sometimes replaced or used interchangeably with “sales” in the press release, but this reflects the market size in terms of units of Tablets and not their absolute value. In the case of Tablets imported into the country it represents the number leaving the first warehouse to OEMs, distributors and retailers. CyberMedia Research does not track the number of Tablets brought on their person by individual passengers landing on Indian soil from overseas destinations or ‘grey’ market Tablets (if any).
