Top 5 Tablet vendors markets share, shipments Q2 2013

Almost every tablet maker experienced slow growth in Q2, 2013 but it was Apple Inc. (AAPL) that recorded negative Y-O-Y growth in Q2, 2013. Apple managed to ship 14.6 million iPads (iPad & iPad Mini) in second quarter, 14.1% down from 17 million during the year before quarter.

“A new iPad launch always piques consumer interest in the tablet category and traditionally that has helped both Apple and its competitors,” said Tom Mainelli, Research Director, Tablets at IDC. “With no new iPads, the market slowed for many vendors, and that’s likely to continue into the third quarter. However, by the fourth quarter we expect new products from Apple, Amazon, and others to drive impressive growth in the market.”

The negative growth haunted almost every tablet maker in Q2 2013 if you compare with first quarter of this year. Samsung was down to 8.1 million tablet shipments in Q2, 2013 from 8.6 million in first quarter. However, its was again Apple that presented the most devastating performance Q-O-Q shipments, down to 14.6 million in second quarter from 19.5 million shipments just a quarter before.
