Dutch tablet market slows, penetration at 67% of households

Tuesday 1 March 2016 | 08:55 CET | News
Around 5.2 million households in the Netherlands own at least one tablet, according to independent market researcher Telecompaper. However, the latest research shows that after years of rapid growth, the market penetration of tablets has hit a plateau, with no change in the past three quarters. The survey also found that medium-sized tablets are used more actively than small or large tablets, and the top three activities for Dutch consumers on their tablets are surfing the internet, gaming and social media.
