Covered in this report
For the purposes of this report, Mintel has used the following definitions:
‘Desktop’ refers to computers intended for use at a single location. It covers tower units and all-in-ones with an integrated display.
‘Laptop’ refers to computers which have the display and primary input devices integrated into one unit and are intended for mobile use. The term covers notebooks, Ultrabooks, Chromebooks, netbooks, detachable and convertible laptops.
‘Tablet’ refers to a computer with an integrated touchscreen that is intended to be a primary input device. The term covers slate form factor tablets as well as hybrid tablets that come with a detachable keyboard and can be transformed into a laptop form factor.
“The desktop, laptop and tablet market continues to decline, with desktops in particular still set for a difficult future, although manufacturers will hope the rapidly growing competitive gaming sector can help. Meanwhile, laptop sales continue to decline but Chromebooks are gaining in popularity. Consumers are also increasingly finding value in using their tablet for working or studying purposes, as the likes of Apple and Samsung continue to push their credentials as genuine laptop replacements.”
– Zach Emmanuel, Consumer Technology Analyst
