This IDC study provides an analysis of vendor performance in the tablet market for 2Q19."The worldwide tablet market continued to decline as we saw slate shipments fall 11.2% to 26.3 million units in the second quarter of 2019. However, the detachable market is still recovering from a dismal 2018 with Apple dominating nearly half of the market and Microsoft continuing to see strong year-over-year growth on the strength of Surface Pro 6," said Lauren Guenveur, senior research analyst, IDC's Devices. "Be careful to watch the tablet market throughout the end of the year, particularly in the United States where we see the threat of tariffs on List 4 products making a large impact in inventory pull in through the end of 2019."
