Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/gzvnr2/global_tablet) has announced the addition of the "Global Tablet Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.

The analysts forecast the Global Tablet market will grow at a CAGR of 26.2 percent over the period 2013-2018. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing need for mobile applications among consumers. The Global Tablet market has also been witnessing growing demand for tablets among enterprises. However, the increasing adoption of phablets in emerging markets could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

The key vendors dominating this space are Amazon.com Inc., Apple Inc., ASUSTeK Computer Inc., Lenovo Group Ltd., and Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd.

The other vendors mentioned in the report are Acer Inc., BlackBerry Ltd., Google Inc., Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd., LG Electronics Inc., Microsoft Corp., and Motorola Inc.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: One of the major trends being witnessed in the Global Tablet market is the growing demand for tablets in enterprises. In enterprises, tablets are preferred to PCs because they can help the management control and manage support costs better. Tablets are more reliable than NB computers because they have fewer moving parts and offer more benefits as a mobile computing device than NBs. The growth of tablets might affect the usage of PCs in enterprises. Although tablets may not replace PCs in enterprises in the near future, they are expected to emerge as the preferred computing device over the next few years.

According to the report, one of the major drivers in this market is the increasing need for mobile applications among consumers. Consumers want to be connected to the internet at all times for numerous purposes.
