    The U.S. tablet PC market is mainly driven by the growing demand from consumers for technologically advanced products. Moreover, smaller size compared to laptops, better battery life, and multi-tasking ability enables the use of tablet PCs in number of applications. In addition, there is growing demand for tablet PCs, especially from business enterprises as these devices are adapted for business software such as CRM, business intelligence and dashboards.

    The study provides assessment of the U.S. tablet PC market based on intended use, screen size, interface (operating platform and user interface) and retail channel. In terms of screen size, tablet PCs with screen size ranging between 9.6″ and 11″ is the largest selling segment, with more than 25 million tablet PCs sold in 2012 in the U.S. Despite being the largest segment, the share of tablet PCs in this category is decreasing considerably with the growing popularity of tablet PCs having smaller screen size of 8 inch and below.

    Tablet PCs in the U.S. has higher traction from individual customers who buy the product for their personal use, whereas the business and corporate use segment still has comparatively lower penetration. However, with the fast growing mobile workforce in the U.S., the corporate use segment is expected to be the fastest growing end use segment at a CAGR of 18.1% from 2012 to 2018.

    The sale of tablet PCs through internet was high initially since the first tablet - iPad was available for sale primarily on the company website and few selective retail outlets. With the introduction of new tablet PCs by different manufacturers, the sale of tablets through retail outlets, especially mass retailers and specialty stores is expected to grow rapidly in the near future.
