Mobile PC market to reach 762.7 mln units in 2017

Monday 6 May 2013 | 21:00 CET | News
The mobile PC market is expected to increase from 367.6 million units shipped in 2012 to 762.7 million globally by 2017, driven by touch-enabled form factors, according to a new report from NPD DisplaySearch. The majority of this shift will come as tablet PCs begin to replace notebook PCs this year as the dominant mobile PC form factor, and touch becomes a key feature in mobile PC adoption. Tablet PC shipments are forecast to increase 67 percent year-over-year to 256.6 million in 2013, and reach 579.4 million by 2017. White box tablet PCs accounted for one-third of tablet PC shipments in 2013
