The U.S. tablet PC market is mainly driven by the growing demand from consumers for technologically advanced products. Moreover, smaller size compared to laptops, better battery life, and multi-tasking ability enables the use of tablet PCs in number of applications. In addition, there is growing demand for tablet PCs, especially from business enterprises as these devices are adapted for business software such as CRM, business intelligence and dashboards.

The study provides assessment of the U.S. tablet PC market based on intended use, screen size, interface (operating platform and user interface) and retail channel. In terms of screen size, tablet PCs with screen size ranging between 9.6″ and 11″ is the largest selling segment, with more than 25 million tablet PCs sold in 2012 in the U.S. Despite being the largest segment, the share of tablet PCs in this category is decreasing considerably with the growing popularity of tablet PCs having smaller screen size of 8 inch and below.

Tablet PCs in the U.S. has higher traction from individual customers who buy the product for their personal use, whereas the business and corporate use segment still has comparatively lower penetration. However, with the fast growing mobile workforce in the U.S., the corporate use segment is expected to be the fastest growing end use segment at a CAGR of 18.1% from 2012 to 2018.

The sale of tablet PCs through internet was high initially since the first tablet - iPad was available for sale primarily on the company website and few selective retail outlets. With the introduction of new tablet PCs by different manufacturers, the sale of tablets through retail outlets, especially mass retailers and specialty stores is expected to grow rapidly in the near future.

There is variance in price with regards to intended use of tablet PCs. The overall average selling price (ASP) of tablet computers bought for business and corporate use intent is computed to be higher as compared to tablets bought for personal use intent. The higher ASP of business and corporate intent devices is largely due to the need of better processing speed and larger data storage capacities.

With the introduction of the first modern tablet - an iPad from Apple, the tablet PCs market in the U.S. begun to surface and gain ground. It created competition among the major desktop and laptop PC manufacturers who set out to obtain advantage of early movers in the U.S. market. Initially, Apple with its iOS dominated the U.S. tablet PCs market; however, Android based tablet PCs are expected to take over Apple's share in the coming years.

This research report will provide complete insights on the U.S. tablet PC market and explain the current trends and factors responsible for driving the market growth. The study will prove to be helpful for emerging players to know about the growth strategies implemented by existing players and help existing players in strategic planning.

The world has seen aggressive competition among tablet PC manufacturers after the launch of iPad from Apple. Within five months of the release of iPad, Samsung launched its Samsung Galaxy Tab to compete with Apple. Since then, the tablet PC manufacturing industry has seen the emergence of numerous players. Most tablet manufacturers such as Asus, HP, and Lenovo among others released their models of tablet PCs in quick successions, but none of them could surpass Apple's share.
