Market research firm CMR today made it clear that While the Indian tablet PC market recorded a 4 per cent decline (Year-on-Year) in the third quarter this year, Lenovo captured 20.3 per cent share to lead the segment, witnessing 94 per cent growth over the previous quarter.
Acer grabbed the second spot with 16 per cent market share in terms of unit shipments.
“Over a period of time, tablet PCs are finding improved adoption in corporate as well as government segment. Education was the key segment for B2B sales and the key driving force behind the growth in 3Q 2017,” Narinder Kumar, Lead Analyst, CMR, said in a statement.
Lenovo’s growth was attributed to its plan of distribution of its tablets towards “NAMO E-Tab Tablet Sahay Yojana” in August. The company’s tablet model “Tab3” 7-inch was the highest contributor with 13 per cent market share in overall tablet market in terms of unit shipments.
