“Apple to Remain Top of the Tablet Game For the Foreseeable Future” Says the Snugg
Apple becomes the second company in history to be valued at $600 billion; a valuation that may hold steady if analyst views are anything to go by...
In the first couple of days after its release, the New iPad saw unit sales of over 3 million. A feat that few other tablet manufacturers can boast about; and now, data provided by business analysts Gartner shows that Apple is likely continue leading the tablet industry for the next four years.
Mr Richard Mercer, the Managing Director of The Snugg stated that:
“Apple is the second company in history to hit the $600 billion mark, a feat achieved only by Microsoft ten years earlier; what’s truly extraordinary is that they’d reached the $500 billion mark in February and $400 billion just two months prior to that. You don’t see growth like that everyday. As their New iPad marks the 3rd iPad generation, Apple look set to continue leading the industry whilst other tablet manufacturer’s are left to fight over the niches left in Apple’s wake. As an iPad 3 Case manufacturer, we can see that support for the iPad is stronger than ever and so it’s up to us to innovate and to address consumer case needs effectively as adoption of the New iPad soars”.
In recent news, reports by Mashable have shown that the ‘Cult of Mac’ shows no sign of slowing, where 5 people have been charged for helping a Chinese teenager sell his kidney to raise money to purchase an iPad and iPhone.
“This is of course an extreme and isolated incident, but iPad users are more likely than most to champion their chosen tablet; where many have had the Apple logo shaved into their heads for launch days whilst others dress up for the occasion. Apple has built a brand that engages users like no other and that will contribute massively to their continued dominance. As 4G becomes the standard for on-the-go browsing, we can expect mobile iPad use to become more prevalent; so consumer expectations from case makers will be higher than ever, which is why we’ve only used the best materials and workmanship in our latest iPad 3 Case” Says Mr Mercer.
The figures produced by Gartner foresee the sale of 119 million media tablet sales worldwide in this year, where roughly 73 million, or 61% - will be iPads. Into 2013, this grows to 100 million iPads while the overall media tablet market grows to over 180 million, while by 2016, Apple will shift some 170 million units which will still give it a 45 percent slice of the market. Despite healthy sales growth, it illustrates a decline in market share; although much can change in four years.
“As the benchmark for the tablet industry, the iPad is likely to retain its position of industry leadership for years to come and so we’ll continue to provide our best-selling iPad Cases for coming iterations. We’re currently working on re-releasing our extra thin iPad 2 cover for the iPad 3 as well as cases in other designs and textures for both casual and professional iPad users. As iPad 3 adoption grows, so too will our iPad 3 case collection so we’ll have something for everyone” adds Mr Mercer
