Research and Markets: Worldwide PC and Tablet Sales Market Report 2013

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/s38ts4/worldwide_pc_and) has announced the addition of the "Worldwide PC and Tablet Market Report 2013" report to their offering.

A market research report with perspectives and a top-down view of the PC industry, past, present & future trends, including pad and tablet devices.

The PC industry celebrated its 35th year anniversary in 2010. From its humble beginning as hobby computer kits in 1975, the PC industry has come a long way. In 1975, less than 50,000 PCs were sold with a value of about $60M. From this limited start the PC industry has grown to of over 418M units in 2012. PC retail revenue topped $370B in 2012. The rapid success of the iPad and similar tablet products is expected to increase the PC industry in the next five years. The next table shows the tremendous growth of the PC industry in the last 35+ years. The new PC category defined by the iPad will give a strong growth boost for a few more years.

The sheer size of the PC industry limits its growth rate, but the yearly worldwide sales will grow by over 36% in the next five years from 418M units in 2012 to over 630M in 2017 or a 8.5% compound annual growth rate. Worldwide PCs in-use surpassed 1.6B units in 2012 and will top 2.5B units by year-end 2017. Worldwide cumulative PC sales topped 1B units in 2002, 2B in 2007 and surpassed 3B in 2010 and will pass 5B units in 2015 and 6.5B in 2017. PCs in-use reached 338M in the U.S. in 2012 and will top 440M in 2017. Worldwide PCs in-use surpassed 1.6B in 2012 and will top 2.5B units in 2017.

PC revenue was growing slower than unit growth due to considerable price declines and saw a pause in the 2008-2009 recession due to lower unit sales growth than price declines. The worldwide PC revenues were $302B in 2000, which increased to over $374B in 2012. Worldwide PC revenue will grow in the next five years to $440B in 2017, which is due to the unit growth boost from the iPad and other tablets.
