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.”

Samsung was down to 8.1 million tablet shipments in Q2, 2013 from 8.6 million in first quarter.

On the other hand, Apple’s iOS market share – iPad market share to be more specific – in Q2 dived down to just 32.5% in last quarter, from 60.3% in a year back quarter. Blackberry was nowhere in the competition though, it reached to negligible market share in Q2, 2013 by shipping mere 0.1 million tablets.
