The analysis company
Canalys has compiled a new report looking at worldwide tablet sales, and it presents both good and bad news for Apple.
According to the report, Apple continues to dominate the segment; in fact, the company’s
iPad sales are up by 19.8% compared to the corresponding period last year. But that’s slightly below the growth shown by the market as a whole (at 26%) and well behind the individual growth of the other companies in the top five.
After Apple comes Samsung (up 39.2%), Huawei (up 44.5%) and Amazon (up 37.1%). Lenovo, in fifth place, saw the most annual growth of all: an astonishing 52.9%. Of course, it could be argued that it’s easier to achieve high percentage growth when you’re starting from a much lower number.
Unit sales of tablets, second quarter of 2020 (market share in brackets):
- Apple: 14.2 million (38%)
- Samsung: 7 million (18.7%)
- Huawei: 4.8 million (12.7%)
- Amazon: 3.2 million (8.4%)
- Lenovo: 2.8 million (7.5%)
Other manufacturers sold 5.5 million units between them, representing a combined market share of 14.7%.
