Thursday 15 November 2012 | 00:35 CET | News
Worldwide e-book reader shipments are forecast to hit 4.57 million units in Q4, up 92 percent from the previous quarter but down 49.1 percent year-on-year, according to Digitimes Research. Total 2012 shipments are expected to come in at 9.82 million, down 57.3 percent from 2011. Amazon will be the largest vendor in 2012, accounting for 55 percent of global shipments, followed by Kobo with 20 percent, Barnes and Noble with 10 percent, and Sony with 6 percent. Due to increasing competition from 7-inch tablets and large-screen smartphones, global e-book reader shipments are expected to continue falling to 8.2 million units in 2013, 6.5 million units in 2014, and 5 million units in 2015.
