One of the Major Markets for X-SMART USB and MicroSD Connectors is the Growing Tablet Market - 350+ Million Units this Year

The surge of smaller, lower-priced devices in the tablet market has led financial analyst to increase their 2017 forecast for the worldwide tablet market to 350 million, up from its previous forecast of 230 million units. Increases in tablet shipments have been made throughout the forecast period with an average increase of 12% between 2017 and 2021. The latest forecast update estimates tablet shipments to be upwards of 360 million by the end of 2018.

Many of the tablets shipped in 2017 will be below 12 inches in screen size. Manufacturers of tablets are moving quickly to compete in this space as consumers realize that these small devices are often more ideal than larger tablets for their daily use.

Android-based tablets expanded their share of the market, and analysts expect that trend to continue in 2017. Android's gains come at the expense of Apple's iOS, which is expected to slip from 46% of the market in 2017. Longer term, both iOS and Android will eventually relinquish some market share to Windows-based tablets, with Windows 10 predicted to grow from 1% of the market in 2012 to 7.4% in 2017. IDC expects Windows RT growth to remain below 3% during the forecast period. Microsoft's has focusing their attention on Windows 10. This focus is driving better share growth in the tablet market.


X-SMART USB and MicroSD Connector SmartPhone Market- Over 950 Million Forecast for this Year

More smartphones are forecast to be shipped globally than feature phones in 2017, the first such occurrence in the mobile phone market on an annual basis. According financial analyst, manufacturers will ship over 980 million smartphones this year which is over 50% of the total mobile phone shipments worldwide.

Smartphone prices have fallen globally, the smartphone strata are wider than ever, and the roll-out of data-centric fourth-generation (4G) wireless networks are three factors that have made these "do-it-all" devices an increasingly attractive option for users. By the end of 2018, analyst forecasts 1.5 billion smartphones will be shipped worldwide.

To date, much of the world's smartphone shipments were a direct result of demand in mature economies such as the U.S. The balance of smartphone demand is gradually shifting, however, to emerging markets where smartphone user bases are still relatively small and economic prospects are considerably higher. Smartphone shipments to China, Brazil, and India will comprise a growing percentage of the device type's volume in each forecast year. Smartphone demand is burgeoning. China, which supplanted the U.S. last year as the global leader in smartphone shipments, is at the forefront of this shift.

According to analysts, 2012 marked the first time that China has ever held the top spot on an annual basis with 69 million units shipped there. The United States dropped to second place with 66 million units. This trend is expected to continue in 2017.

Analyst have been predicting bigger things for China over the last year. China's PC market would grow by approximately 10 percent or more over the course of 2017. According to this new report, analysts pointed toward form factor and other computing preferences that resonated more with Chinese consumers compared to elsewhere. Desktops and notebooks split the market in China, which seems to be unique to the country. X-SMART Connectors provide a board space saves for manufacturers of notebooks, laptops and desktop PCs.
